Public Interest Technology University Network (PIT-UN) Annual Convening

PIT-UN is a partnership that fosters collaboration among nearly four dozen institutions of higher education committed to building the nascent field of public interest technology - the study and application of technology expertise to advance the public interest, generate public benefits, and promote the public good.

On November 1-2, 2021, ASU and the School for the Future of Innovation in Society will host the 3rd annual convening of the PIT-UN. Day 1 will feature working meetings of the network, including special sessions on topics related to PIT students and teaching PIT; the relationship between PIT and justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (JEDI) activities; PIT and global inequities; and working with for-profit and not-for-profit organizations around PIT.

Day 2 will feature a public meeting on climate technologies and PIT, and the public announcement of the 2021 PIT-UN grantees, joining grantees from the previous two years who will present findings from their projects.

Registration for the meeting will open soon, and the meeting will take place at the new Westin Tempe as well as on ASU’s Tempe Campus.
