Science, Technology and Innovation Policy

 

Technology and Innovation

The technology innovation cluster studies policies related to science, technology, and innovation. Incentive policies motivate science and technology advancement which improves the living standards and economic performance, while regulatory policies prevent human beings from hazardous effects of science and technology progress, e.g., pollution, data security, and income inequality. Formulating appropriate and effective policies requires interdisciplinary knowledge and collaboration among experts of different professions.
