Bridging the Gap between Policy and Technology

Wadhwani Institute of Technology and Policy

In response to the Government of India’s (GoI) vision of mainstreaming new-age technologies in all aspects of its operations, the ‘Wadhwani Institute of Technology and Policy (WITP)’ is set up to equip bureaucrats, and all policy makers with case-based knowledge of emerging technologies through:

  • Technology and policy subject matter experts, faculty and analysts
  • Engagement with individual GoI and state govt. ministries/departments on the application of emerging technologies in new policies under consideration, including evolution of global issues that can influence technology choices in India
  • A technology focused Training Academy that provides knowledge of core technologies as well as the application of these technologies to specific ministries, departments, agencies and missions
  • A deep, multi-disciplinary technology program for mid-level bureaucrats and PSU heads and shorter, more intensive programs for ministers and senior bureaucrats
  • A technology platform to facilitate ongoing training at scale across India, including deep and rich mobile-accessible video and other training content like case studies

WITP works closely with the Office of the Principal Scientific Adviser (PSA) to Government of India to achieve the goals and objectives of the Empowered Technology Group (ETG).
