Young Applauds Newly Launched Center for Tech Diplomacy at Purdue

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) today applauded the Purdue Research Foundation’s newly launched Center for Tech Diplomacy at Purdue (CTDP) led by Chairman Keith Krach, former U.S. Under Secretary of State. CTDP is a think tank focused on using technology to advance freedom, democracy, and human rights, as well as U.S. diplomacy and national security.

“Diplomacy and technology are more closely linked than ever before, which is why I introduced the Endless Frontier Act to protect American interests abroad and outcompete China in key emerging technology areas that are critical to our national security. The creation of the Center for Tech Diplomacy at Purdue will help further this goal by working with our allies to develop policies that support innovation and ensure the United States maintains its posture as a world leader,” said Senator Young.
