Undergraduate (PURA) Research Opportunity

The Georgia Tech Program in Science, Technology and Innovation Policy (STIP) — a collaborative initiative of the School of Public Policy and the Enterprise Innovation Institute at Georgia Tech — provides real-time research opportunities for BSPP students seeking President’s Undergraduate Research Awards.

STIP topical areas include research on emerging technologies (such as nanotechnology or vaccine therapy) and leading-edge innovation management and policy approaches. Undergraduate research assistants work as part of an international team of faculty and student researchers….

STIP’s research projects focus on innovation, scientific creativity, research systems assessessment, regional innovation and development, and real-time technology assessment. Research sponsors include the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the European Union, and Georgia Research Alliance.

Located in Technology Square, the STIP group uses (and can provide training in) marketable skills such as bibliometric techniques, datamining, GIS, survey research, modeling, and policy analysis. STIP has successfully engaged several PURA research assistants in recent years.

BSPP students interested in a PURA placement with STIP should contact Dr. Jan Youtie at jan.youtie@innovate.gatech.edu;  for more info on STIP, see http://www.stip.gatech.edu
