Thrust Areas

The SoPP will focus on six broad overlapping topics that are of great importance to the country: energy and environment; health innovations and systems; sustainable habitats; agriculture, food, and water; industry and economy; and internet, digital information and society.

At the same time, the School will also explore cross-cutting themes of technical higher education as well as examine various facets of STI policies, processes, institutions, governance, and societal acceptance. 

We also anticipate adding other areas as the School develops, the faculty’s research interests evolve, and new scholars join the group.
