Research Partnerships

ETG's teams forge international partnerships and do research on emerging technologies. As children of the digital age, we believe that young people have an incredible capability to leverage emerging technologies to uphold values-based development and shape future policy around key emerging technologies. To this end, we partner with leading public and private actors on a variety of research and innovation projects designed to leverage the power of emerging technologies and promote socially optimal outcomes.

Please note: our project teams function under the probono, voluntary mentorship of these listed external organizations. ETG maintains independent decision-making in all matters.
