2021 Global Technology Summit: Global Meets Local
14 th to 16th December 2021

Join us this December for the sixth iteration of the Global Technology Summit, themed ‘Global Meets Local’, that aims to take an in-depth look at the changing nature of technology and geopolitics, assess its global effects, and consider the emerging realities. Held in a hybrid format, the summit will convene industry experts, policymakers, scholars, scientists, and other stakeholders from all over the world to deliberate over three days on three comprehensive sub-themes—The Future of Technology: Resilience and Partnerships; Technology & Innovation: Roadmap to Sustainability and Inclusion; and Glocalizing Emerging Technologies: Building Digital Capabilities.

About the Summit and This Year’s Theme

With major global supply-chain disruptions, the pandemic has challenged assumptions about the relationship between the global and the local. In the sphere of technology, the pandemic has acted as an inflection point for several trends that advocate digital sovereignty. The increased interdependence on the internet has increased concerns over it being misused or weaponized. This has induced a rethinking on national strategies towards globalizing technological systems that balance concerns of national sovereignty with those of global efficiency and innovation. Carnegie Endowment for International Peace India, in collaboration with the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India has been hosting the Global Technology Summit (GTS) annually since Carnegie India’s inception in 2016.
