Tech Track 2

The Tech Track 2 (TT2) initiative is designed to foster deeper cooperation between US government leaders, tech executives, and distinguished academics on urgent national security challenges. Advanced research and emerging technologies have long been a cornerstone of US global leadership, but the cultural divide between Washington, D.C. and Silicon Valley, exacerbated by outdated government policies, undermines America’s ability to leverage its capacity for innovation on behalf of US national interests. TT2 seeks to break down barriers between the government, industry, and academia, and inspire partnerships that reinforce US advantages critical to protecting liberal democratic values, fostering prosperity, and preserving peace worldwide.

Great power competition between the US and China is the defining feature of the 21st century – and emerging technologies will determine who will win and what values will shape the international order.
