The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the oldest and most successful military alliance in existence, plays a critical role in protecting the populations of its 30 member countries across North America and Europe from threats including rogue nations, terrorism, and even climate change.
With the NATO 2030 program, the Alliance is actively engaging students at universities across its members to try and address emerging technologies and challenges. As part of this, there is an opportunity for Georgia Tech students to join existing teams of undergraduates and graduates at three other international universities to work on one of two ongoing efforts.
Required commitments may vary, but will require 1-2 hours per week through the end of the semester, with options to extend into summer and fall if students are interested. Students who have worked on these projects previously have gotten to engage with the senior levels of NATO and SHAPE, and there is the option to apply for paid internships and entry-level positions with NATO in Belgium, the USA, or other locations in Europe.
- False Information / Disinformation
- Working on methods and approaches of identifying false information and fake news in real time in order to identify, track, and potentially mitigate. There are policy implications that need to come out of this as well.
- Cognitive Biotechnologies
- Researching the emergence of different technologies related to cognition and human performance. This project is a strategy and policy endeavor to monitor and alert (predict) in order to identify those technologies and application areas that are likely to be of great interest to the NATO Alliance.
