About The Center for the Governance of Change
The Center for the Governance of Change (CGC) is an applied-research, educational institution based at IE University that studies the political, economic, and societal implications of the current technological revolution and advances solutions to overcome its unwanted effects.
The CGC does so by producing pioneering impact-oriented research that cuts across disciplines and methodologies to unveil the complexity of emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Blockchain, and Robotics, and explore its potential threats and contributions to society.
Moreover, the CGC also runs a number of executive programs on emerging tech for public institutions and companies interested in expanding their understanding of disruptive trends, and a series of outreach activities aimed at improving the general public’s awareness and agency over the coming changes. All this for one purpose: to help building a more prosperous and sustainable society for all.
What we do
The Center hosts a number of cutting-edge, transdisciplinary research programs designed to broaden our understanding of some of the most pressing challenges of our time, and generate the right policy options to tackle them.
The Center expands IE's teaching portfolio by offering new undergraduate and graduate courses, executive programs and study tours for professionals interested in up-skilling their leadership.
The Center actively engages in public debate at an international level. It runs several outreach projects, including public conferences, open workshops and lectures series.
