The University System Office, in collaboration with the Georgia Tech administration, has completed a formal review of concerns raised regarding the Information and Communications Laboratory (ICL), which operates in the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). The review addressed challenges raised in 2017 and 2018.
The process identified areas of improvement around organizational effectiveness and workplace culture, which are already being addressed by the relevant units. Changes include personnel actions, modifications in the Institute’s intellectual (IP) policy and program, and a review of GTRI’s organizational structure.
We are confident that these changes, coupled with the new executive leadership in place since last year and Institute wide programs in the area of ethics and compliance, will strengthen our research enterprise, accelerate its extraordinary growth and amplify its extraordinary impact in areas of strategic national importance and global significance.
Fndings from the review are detailed here.
