Strategic Technologies Program

The Strategic Technologies Program (STP) conducts research on the social, economic, and security challenges created by emerging technologies to inform effective policy solutions and best practices

The STP’s research agenda includes cybersecurity, emerging technologies and innovation, frameworks for digital governance, 5G networks and telecommunications, surveillance and privacy, and the role of technology in power and conflict.

The STP brings together technologists, policymakers, civil society, and business leaders from around the world. In a time when disruptive technologies are reshaping the global economy and society, the program provides pragmatic and data-driven analysis and policy recommendations to face these challenges.
