BTI addresses real-world challenges as they relate to borders, trade and travel, and immigration research. These challenges have defined our core thrusts of funded research projects: the flows of people and the flows of goods.

BTI partners with industry and community in order to transition research into technology and policies. The Center accomplishes this by working closely with partners and researchers to identify opportunities, pursuing joint proposals, and collaborative conferences.
