Centre for Governance of Emerging Technologies

Centre for Governance of Emerging Technologies - GET

The aim of GET is to explore the relationship between technology and international policy from an interdisciplinary perspective, from the theory of international relations, philosophy, sociology to interaction with international law. Among the key research topics is cyber ​​and space security, with an emphasis on planetary defense, asteroid mining, and the use of power lasers for a variety of space applications ranging from orbit cleaning to breakthrough interstellar travel projects. The center deals with activities ranging from basic theoretical research to policy-oriented work, for example the formulation of the emergence of an international security regime for the peaceful use of laser technology in space. Its members regularly inform the public in the media, organize public meetings and international workshops that combine technology development and political science, publish policy papers or act as experts in addition to diplomatic missions to the UN and other international organizations.
