next gen tech policy

 
 
The world of academic research is too often siloed across disciplines and disconnected from the world of policy. Meanwhile, private sector innovation often disconnects from the reality of technology users.  
PILOT lab seeks to bridge the gap by producing and translating the technology research that policy makers need to inform their innovation policy decisions.
Through its projects and events, PILOT lab strives to stimulate the conversation around how to (re)build the technology economy in a sustainable manner, guided by legal and ethical principles. 
PILOT lab was founded by Professor Andrea M. Matwyshyn in July 2019, and it is a pilot project of the PSU Law, Policy, and Engineering Initiative. The initiative is a partnership among Penn State Engineering, Penn State Law and the School of International Affairs focused on developing interdisciplinary education and research at the forefront of societal need.  The work of the lab is buttressed by a team of expert affiliates
