Centre for Information Technology and Public Policy
The Centre for Information Technology and Public Policy (CITAPP) at IIIT Bangalore is an interdisciplinary research and advocacy centre that focuses on the policy challenges and the organizational demands made by technological innovation. The Centre seeks to provide a means to nurture and transform public policy around the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in engagement with academia and researchers, policy planners, political leaders and community representatives, technology vendors, public officials and civil society organisations.
Research and Consulting @ CITAPP
CITAPP engages in research and evaluation studies of topics where ICTs and public interest intersect. Of particular interest is how technological advances, along with institutional changes, address the needs of underserved communities. Affiliates of the Centre study both the production and use of ICTs. Recent research topics have included the innovativeness of firms and regions, the economic impacts of digital flows, and the implications of digital identities and digital money for marginalised populations. True to its inter and multidisciplinary mandate, research at the Centre draws on a variety of disciplines and methods.
Academics @ CITAPP
CITAPP faculty offer a variety of courses pertaining to the economic, social and political shaping of IT, as well the social consequences of digital interventions. A number of programmes offered at the institute also address these topics. A unique interdisciplinary Masters in Digital Society programme is anchored by CITAPP faculty. Students with interests at the intersection of IT and Society can also apply for our MS (by Research) and PhD programmes in the area. Students in the iMTech, MTech and MSc (Digital Society) programmes can choose a thesis option with faculty at the Centre to deepen their research skills and their interests in themes pertaining to the social dimensions of digital technologies.
