Carnegie India

Annual Grant

The Global Technology Summit (GTS) — Carnegie India’s annual flagship event is co-hosted with the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India. It brings together industry experts, policymakers, scientists, and other stakeholders from around the world, to deliberate on the changing nature of technology and geopolitics. Its aim is to create a new framework of engagement that addresses the concerns of all stakeholders without hindering technological progress and innovation.

Mazumdar Shaw Philanthropy supports the Summit and Programme initiatives through the year. Over the last seven editions of the GTS (2016–2022), Carnegie India has curated discussions, debates, public sessions and private roundtables around topics of the innovation ecosystem in India, pandemics and global health security, ethics of gene-editing, sustainable mobility, digital public goods, cyber-resilience, digital currencies and payments, artificial intelligence, 5G and the future of connectivity, global flows of data, geopolitics of technology, priorities for India’s G20 presidency, cybersecurity, open digital ecosystems, sustainable technologies and semiconductor supply chains. The GTS is curated in such a way that it attracts participation from ministers, senior government officials, expert practitioners, industry leaders, public policy professionals, entrepreneurs, academics, and civil society representatives from India and abroad.

Kiran’s support has been central to the GTS, which has been a vehicle to spark policy discussions, foster collaboration and push the larger policy needle. Through the GTS, we have also been able to build bridges, meaningful relationships and create a supportive network which amplifies the collective impact generated through GTS.
