To accelerate the benefits and minimize the risks of emerging technology, the Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution Network will expand to include institutions advancing public-private cooperation on the governance of emerging technologies.
Shaping the trajectory of the Fourth Industrial Revolution is a global effort. Local knowledge can empower global change. Affiliate Centres selected to join the Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution Network can access and share research and analysis across our four Centres and nine portfolio areas. Combined with emerging technology policy initiatives managed locally, Affiliate Centres will play a vital role in helping to shape the development of national Fourth Industrial Revolution strategies and public-private initiatives.
Organizations eligible to join the C4IR Network as Affiliates include governmental offices, advisory commissions or related research bodies, academic institutes or universities, non-profit organizations or business associations. Affiliates will actively engage with their host government in the policy design and piloting activities.
