Tech Policy
Design Centre

The Tech Policy Design Centre (TPDC) is a nonpartisan, independent research organisation at the Australian National University. Our mission is to develop fit-for-purpose tech policy frameworks to shape technology for the long-term benefit of humanity. We work to mature the tech-governance ecosystem in collaboration with industry, government, civil society, and academia.


Acknowledgement of Country

The ANU Tech Policy Design Centre acknowledges, celebrates and pays our respects to the Ngunnawal and Ngambri people of the Canberra region and to all First Nations Australians on whose traditional lands we meet and work, and whose cultures are among the oldest continuing cultures in human history.


About us

“At the Tech Policy Design Centre, we believe that it is possible to shape a future in which people, technology and the planet thrive. But, to do that, we need to get much better at designing and implementing effective technology policy and regulation.”

Professor Johanna Weaver
Director, ANU Tech Policy Design Centre
