The Center for Technology in Government University at Albany, State University of New York (CTG UAlbany) generates knowledge, develops capabilities, and co-creates technology-enabled innovations with government leaders and organizations to address societal challenges and increase public value. CTG UAlbany was established in 1993 and is a university-wide research center located at the University at Albany, State University of New York and reports to the University at Albany Vice President for Research and Economic Development.
CTG UAlbany is globally recognized as a leader in research in digital government. Our leadership position is based on thirty years of experience and reputation gained through a rigorous academic and applied research program deeply grounded in the practical challenges and capabilities of government and professional and civil society organizations and focused on producing practical and usable knowledge, tools, and techniques for our government partners. Our co-creation approach in projects with government organizations enables their engagement in creative problem-solving processes and the implementation of innovative and customized digital transformation solutions to complex problems.
The unique combination of public administration and public management, computer science, information systems, data science, business, and international relations disciplines, coupled with our highly skilled academic and professional staff, helps CTG UAlbany bridge the gap between research and practice by addressing public problems that are academically significant and practically relevant. CTG UAlbany produces high impact research and, at the same time, is able to make these academic results useful and valuable for practitioners in public organizations from around the world.
CTG UAlbany has a long history of building and leading multinational, multi-sector, multi-disciplinary collaborative initiatives. Through dozens of partnership projects at all levels of government and around the world, we have developed a unique set of insights, experiences, practices, guides, and tools to support the processes and mitigate the risks of Information and Communications Technology (ICTs) innovation in the public sector. We have worked with governments in the United States, certainly, but also the Middle East, Europe, Asia, Latin America and elsewhere to build new capabilities to solve complex technical and social problems. We have been funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation to lead international networks of field researchers studying the benefits, barriers, and results of innovative government service delivery initiatives.
CTG UAlbany staff are a mix of highly skilled faculty, professionals, and students. They bring a unique combination of public administration and public management, computer science, information systems, data science, business, and international relations disciplines that help CTG UAlbany bridge the gap between research and practice by addressing public problems that are academically significant and practically relevant.Meet our staff
