The most difficult challenges of the future —such as energy, water, sustainability, security, poverty/ development, and natural disasters—will require global solutions, and Georgia Tech will be engaged around the world in developing these solutions. Teams at the Institute are already working on solutions for making solar energy economical, improving environmental and economic sustainability, providing access to clean water, improving the urban infrastructure, advancing health informatics, curing diseases, and securing cyberspace. New interdisciplinary fields are emerging that span technology, science, policy, business, law, and the arts, and these interactions are reshaping how we both view the world, and define and solve problems.
