The Technology Management Policy Graduate Consortium prepares our graduates to excel in their technical fields, and to develop and implement effective strategies for dealing with the risks and opportunities associated with those technologies. Each university decides on the number of students it will send to the Consortium meeting and the organisers then determine the programme based on the abstracts submitted. Awards are given for the best papers and presentations.

About the Consortium

Beginning in 2002, a number of graduate programmes which focus on technology, management and public policy created a "graduate consortium" that brings together faculty and advanced students from each programme at the beginning of each summer. These meetings are built around the interdisciplinary work being conducted by graduate students who give research presentations (either platform talks or posters), which provides an opportunity to get feedback from faculty and their fellow students. The objective of the meeting is to help students build a sense of global community, to network and develop a better sense of where their work fits in the broader community of scholarship, and to learn about how programmes at other institutions are structured and what they are doing.
