Research and Technology Applications
This area of work includes most of UNITAR research efforts in the areas of technology applications and innovation. UNITAR is home to an advanced centre of excellence for satellite imagery and data analysis in operation since 2001 (UNOSAT) active in research, applications and specialized training. 21st century technology can do much to shape usable solutions to confront climate change, enable resilience and risk reduction, and involve citizens in the work of the UN through innovative applications. In this area we research also training methodologies and tools to facilitate access to information and knowledge about adult learning principles and instructional design approaches (Knowledge Systems Innovation).
