The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and its partners have been working to tackle the worlds toughest development challenges for more than 50 years. Our mission is to partner to end extreme poverty and promote resilient, democratic societies while advancing our security and prosperity. We have long invested in science, technology, innovation, and partnership (STIP) to achieve progress across many of USAIDs goals. Todays global development landscape is rapidly evolving. Driven by scientific breakthroughs, disruptive innovation, and rapid advancements in information and communication technologies, coupled with growing contributions by the private sector, these changes offer unprecedented opportunities to leverage the worlds best thinking to solve critical global challenges. Recognizing the value of a more focused and coordinated approach to harnessing these changes, USAID established the Innovation, Technology, and Research (ITR) Hub in November 2020 as part of the newly envisioned Bureau for Development, Democracy, and Innovation (DDI). The ITR Hub serves to support USAID in leveraging innovative, technological, and research tools and approaches across all technical and geographic areas in which USAID works. ITR endeavors to take smart risks to test new ideas and partner within the Agency and with other actors to harness the power of innovative tools and approaches that accelerate development impact.
