Science & technology for the public good

Addressing urgent questions at the intersection of science, technology, policy, and society.

Our Mission

Communities are increasingly concerned they do not benefit from research and development and that the risks of emerging technologies may outweigh their benefits. We bring a rigorous interdisciplinary lens to understanding these concerns, translating them to policymakers, engineers, scientists, and civil society to produce more equitable and just science, technology, and related policies.
