The Atlantic Council GeoTech Center has a mission to shape the future of technology and data to advance people, planet, prosperity, and peace.
Vision and purpose
Technological advances are transforming lives across the globe—and the accelerating pace at which emerging technologies are being developed and deployed can lead to unanticipated outcomes.
The GeoTech Center is working to identify and communicate what is required so that emerging technologies can enter use widely across the globe for public benefit, while identifying and mitigating potential societal and geopolitical risks. The Center thereby serves as an essential bridge between technologists and national as well as international policymakers, bringing together subject matter experts, thought leaders, and decision-makers through purposeful convenings to consider the broader societal, economic, and geopolitical implications of new and emerging technologies; leverage technology to solve global challenges; and develop actionable tech policy, partnerships, and programs.
The Atlantic Council GeoTech Center seeks to provide policymakers and technologists with diverse stakeholder perspectives on “tech for good” and pragmatic approaches to the geopolitics of technological change.
