Future and Emerging Technologies

The specific aim is to turn Europe's excellent science base into a competitive advantage. FET actions are expected to initiate radically new lines of technology through unexplored collaborations between advanced multidisciplinary science and cutting-edge engineering.


It will help Europe grasp leadership early on in those promising future technology areas able to renew the basis for future European competitiveness and growth, and that can make a difference for society in the decades to come.


Research activities:

The FET programme has three complementary lines of action to address different methodologies and scales, from new ideas to long-term challenges:

  1. FET Open supports early-stage joint science and technology research around new ideas for radically new future technologies. It will explore a wide range of new technological possibilities, inspired by cutting-edge science, unconventional collaborations or new research and innovation practices.
  2. FET Proactive the main benefits of this structuring yet exploratory approach are emerging novel areas that are not yet ready for inclusion in idnsutry research roadmaps, and building up and structuring of new interdisciplinary research communities around them.
  3. FET Flagships support ambitious, large-scale, long-term, science-driven, goal-oriented, roadmap-based research initiatives tackling grand challenges in S&T. They are expected to provide transformational impact on science, technology and society, lead to novel innovation clusters in Europe and facilitate alignment of national and regional research efforts.
