EFP Brief No. 152: Combining ICT and Cognitive Science: Opportunities and Risks

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

Many experts think that the technological convergence of previously separated sciences like nanotechnology, biotechnology, information and communication technologies and cognitive sciences will have a deep, long-term impact on society and economy. Key actors in society need to become aware of the challenges linked to converging applications (CA) and take decisions in support of developing them. By analysing CA-related opportunities and risks at a very early stage, we hope to contribute to reducing possible adverse effects in the future.

EFP Brief No. 125: Technology Foresight on Cognition and Robotics

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

This technology foresight project was motivated by the significant resources recently invested, both nationally and internationally, in the development of increasingly advanced and complex robots. There is a need to examine the perspectives, possibilities and consequences of development and utilisation of advances in robotics. The goal of the foresight project is to formulate a robust and broadly accepted foundation that can be used to identify opportunities for innovation associated with the development of robot technology that seem particular promising for Demark within a time frame of ten years.

EFP Brief No. 36: Korea 2030

Friday, May 6th, 2011

The Third Korean Foresight Exercise entitled ‘Future Perspectives and Technology Foresight for Korea – Identifying Challenges and Opportunities for Korea’s Economy and Society’ represents the most comprehensive effort to date by the Korean government in the field of S&T foresight. Capitalizing on previous studies conducted in 1994 and 1999 its chief purpose is to chart the future of Korean society and technology and link peoples future needs to innovations in science and in research. Systemic in both character and methodology this Third Korean Foresight Exercise accelerates Korea’s evolution towards a knowledge society.
