Today is the first day in the life of the blog of the Center for Technology and Economic Development. CTED is a recently created research institute whose primary goal is to develop ways in which innovative technology can be easily integrated in the lives of the people of underdeveloped regions throughout the world. The purpose of this blog is to update you on the progress of CTED’s many projects. We will also frequently add new posts with information about the projects our graduate students are working on in the United Arab Emirates, Ethiopia, Kenya, Ghana and India, the conferences and workshops CTED is organizing in Abu Dhabi, and the activities of the NYU Abu Dhabi student action groups. We also keep an eye on the news in the world of Information and Communication Technology and Economic Development and will inform you about things that are going on in that field.
Thanks for stopping by and make sure to check in regularly!
