The horizon scanning activity (WP1) is based on three pillars:
Task1.1. and 1.2 will reveal mainly new interdisciplinary S&T topics and actor constellations whereas 1.3. and 1.4 will yield new technologies but also “soft aspects” such as new R&I practices and emerging social needs. The outcome of the horizon scanning will be a rolling list of emerging topics in a wide range of domains which will be fed into the sense making phase (WP2).
Deck of cards with the emerging topics & manual for using the deck in workshops.
Structured overview on all projects funded in the FET program highlighting coverage of disciplines, countries, actors and budget.
The Report will list the set of emerging topics identified in all four horizon scanning approaches. The topics will be displayed in a standardized one page template including a brief summary and basic characteristics such as breakthrough potential.
