Technology Must Advance Freedom

America’s first tech tank: CTDP is an independent think tank at the intersection of technology and U.S. foreign policy.

There is a gathering, bipartisan appreciation of the linkage between national security, human rights, economic growth, democracy, and liberty with critical technologies. CTDP brings deep engineering expertise to policymakers in an easily understandable way that demonstrates the inextricable links between technology advances and national interests. CTDP additionally provides training on innovation and technology to national security decisionmakers and diplomats.
