EC Consultation on Future and Emerging Technologies

The European Commission recently launched a public consultation to identify promising research directions on future and emerging technologies (FET) in order to sustain Europe’s competitiveness and growth. Participants are asked to submit their ideas on what research on FET should be and its contribution to key societal challenges such as global warming or ageing of society. The answers to the public consultation will be used as input for identifying topics for future FET work programmes. The FET research programme is a key element of the European Commission's Horizon 2020 research proposals; it aims to foster radical new technologies by exploring novel and high-risk ideas building on scientific foundations. This consultation is open until 30 November 2012. Take Part in this Consultation
