Global Technology and Innovation

The world’s reliance on technology increases daily. Global technology leaders have paved the way for a more interconnected future. The positive impact of technological innovation in the transformation of business, government, and society is undeniable. However, world leaders and citizens are raising concerns about the challenges presented by these trends. From Capitol Hill to Silicon Valley and from Station F to Zhongguancun, it is becoming clear that traditional approaches to studying, monitoring, and regulating industry are less effective in the technology sector.

The Washington Institute understands that business, government, and society cannot take disjointed approaches to the challenges and opportunities presented by technology and innovation. As a result, the Institute is actively engaged in convening leaders from all three sectors and driving solutions to spur technological development while enhancing the relationship among technology companies, consumers and regulatory agencies.

With executives possessing extensive technological, corporate, government, civil society, and academic backgrounds represented on its leadership team and advisory boards, the Washington Institute has both the knowledge and the network to help world leaders create the most advantageous environment for the technology innovators changing the world as well as those they serve.
