CTG UAlbany, formerly named the Center for Technology in Government, invites the public to a celebration reception of its 25th anniversary in University Hall on the University at Albany main campus on Oct. 30 at 3:30 p.m.
CTG UAlbany is a research institute that was established in 1993 to transform public service through innovations in technology, policy and management.
“We are honored to serve as a trusted advisor and an international leader in researching the potential of emerging technologies and translating that knowledge into innovative and sustainable practices that create value for society. Even though it has been 25 years, it seems like we just started.” CTG UAlbany Director Theresa Pardo said. “It has been a wonderful journey that we plan to continue for another 25 years.”
Over the years, CTG UAlbany has worked with international organizations such as the United Nations, the US Federal Government, numerous other national governments including cities around the world, and dozens of New York state and local agencies, among others, to understand complex social problems, redesign service delivery through innovations in policy, management and technology and maximize the potential of data.
CTG UAlbany has also collaborated with hundreds of domestic and international academic and public researchers on building a global digital government research and education community.
“With a combination of policy expertise, technical curiosity, and academic discipline, CTG UAlbany has become a destination for those looking to be on the cutting edge of digital government research and practice,” Pardo said.
