In his new role, he will lead initiatives to expand ITIF’s outreach and engagement with government officials and policy stakeholders in Washington, Brussels, and other foreign capitals.
“ITIF has earned its reputation as the world’s leading think tank for science and technology policy because policymakers know they can trust us to provide high-quality information, analysis, and actionable recommendations on technology and innovation issues,” said ITIF Founder and President Dr. Robert D.

He is a six-time recipient of the State Department’s Superior Honor Award and a four-time recipient of its Meritorious Honor Award.
“I am thrilled to be joining ITIF and look forward to helping advance its important mission,” said Dwyer. “ITIF has long served as the leading authority on issues at the intersection of technological innovation and public policy. That list of issues expands every year, and ITIF’s role in policymaking processes is expanding with it because of the valuable insights, analysis, and recommendations it provides to policymakers.”
