GLOBAL TECHNOLOGICAL ALLIANCE (GTA)
Global Technological Alliance (GTA) came into the vision to tackle several issues such as lack of international acknowledgment of the Technologist and Technician profession, absence of an international standard governing the education and competency development of Technologists and Technicians, which can limit global mobility and recognition as well as lack of an international organization, institution, or society specifically catering to the growth and needs of Technologists and Technicians which represents a significant obstacle to their professional development and recognition on the global stage.
GTA transcends mere cooperation; It represents a profound commitment to harnessing the synergies between diverse organizations, uniting strengths to address complex challenges and unearth transformative solutions. It offers founding organizations the opportunity to combine resources, wisdom, and skills. By harnessing the collective potential of technologists and technicians worldwide, this alliance can reshape the trajectory of technological advancement, leading us toward a future characterized by progress, sustainability, and shared prosperity.
