The engine room.

The Tech Impact Network is a coordinated research endeavour across multiple university programs charging at the current ordering of technology and power.

The tech ecosystem owes much of its unmitigated power to concurrent phenomena of unparalleled market control, stymied public discourse, shrinking public institutions, and atomised dissent.

To counter this, the network’s strategy is one of collective action and collaboration, designed to provide communities with tools and techniques for resisting corporate tech and imagining pro-public futures. It will incubate work on an accelerated timeline over the next five years on the themes of tackling lawlessness, empowering workers, and reimagining tech.

This is a truly global project.

We’re excited to announce the five inaugural nodes in our virtual, global, impact-oriented network – established to rebalance power and restore agency in a world dominated by digital platforms.
