The New America Foundation announced the launch of its Open Technology Institute, whose mission is to convene the nation's best thinking about Internet freedom and open technology.
Building on New America's work in this field, OTI will serve as a hub of impartial research, open discourse, innovative fieldwork, and new tech development. OTI is led by Sascha Meinrath, who will become a New America vice president. The need to think across borders and disciplines to defend the free and open public square has never been greater. Much like economics, OTI will inform and advance work throughout the public policy sphere, including national security, education, diplomacy, and economic competiveness.
