2022 Global Technology Summit

The critical significance of technology policy has manifested itself in multiple forms in this past year. Geopolitical disruptions have confirmed the potential for the weaponization of technology. Disputes over data flows and access are leading to new dialogues on international norm-building. India has demonstrated that a public infrastructure for digital services can promote welfare objectives from financial inclusion to vaccine delivery.

These developments are taking place in the larger global context of supply chain disruptions, semi-conductor shortages and the race to lead on data-related technologies. Against this backdrop, and as India takes the G-20 presidency later this year, the seventh iteration of the Global Technology Summit seeks to explore the present climate in the shapeshifting worlds of international alliances, emerging technologies, and geopolitics.

To discuss these issues and many other questions, join the 7th iteration of the Global Technology Summit, themed Geopolitics of Technology. Carnegie India will convene industry experts, policymakers, scholars, scientists, and other stakeholders from all over the world to take an in-depth look at the changing nature of technology and geopolitics.
