Commissioned research

The geopolitics of technology and digitalisation are of increasing importance to our society. High-tech and data are the new power factors. Economic security, smart industrial policy and digital sovereignty are new policy benchmarks.

This research programme aims to contribute to agenda-setting, deepening and interpretation through leading research and analyses and by shaping the public debate - in close connection with related themes in which Clingendael experts have been active for years, such as globalisation, trade, climate and raw materials.

On this page you find our experts, latest research, events, trainings and media content on the geopolitics of technology and digitalisation. Feel free to reach out to the coordinator of this research programme, Maaike Okano-Heijmans.
