This grant to the Aspen Institute will support the creation of the Aspen Tech Policy Hub. The Hub is a unique effort that will create a Bay Area-based technology policy incubator with deep ties to the Washington, D.C., policy community. The incubator will aim to (a) develop its own policy-relevant technology research agenda; (b) translate existing research into more useable pieces; (c) develop tools and other practical content that stakeholders can actually use (e.g., concrete recommendations, mock legislation, tool kits); and (d) serve as a neutral platform for government, industry, and other think tanks to engage in closed- and sometimes open-door spaces on these issues.

for support of Opportunity to Learn principles in action
The Aspen Institute Education and Society Program works to improve public education by informing and influencing education leaders to take action on matters of education policy and practice. Building on the work of a bipartisan set of policymakers to develop Opportunity to Learn principles, Aspen will support policymakers in advancing an opportunity agenda and facilitating partnerships. This work advances the Education Program’s goal of ensuring that public education provides students with meaningful skills, knowledge, and mindsets by supporting the policies and leadership to ensure a rich vision for public education; creating learning environments for education leaders; and bringing together diverse stakeholders across race, gender, geography and political affiliation.
