The NUST Global Think-Tank Network (GTTN) is an international public policy research, analysis and advocacy initiative that seeks to bring together Pakistan’s thought leadership on one platform for linking up with global intellectual excellence. GTTN aspires to play a meaningful role to help solve national, regional, and global problems through creating globally competitive knowledge for development, poverty reduction, economic growth, social inclusion etc. We promote a multidisciplinary understanding of contemporary events. This approach is aimed at facilitating flows of ideas and insights that can prove crucial for a consensus-based policy-making at the three levels on which ideas circulate. Collaborative gathering, analysis, and interpretation of information are the distinct ways of our engagement with the world at large.
