File Allegato

The seminar will explore the concept of 'emerging technologies' and examine a range of methodological approaches to generate strategic intelligence about technological emergence, which, in turn, can to support decision- and policy-making. There is a considerable interest around emerging technologies given the potential impact these technologies are capable of exerting on the economy and society.

Emerging technologies have been subject of several policy and funding initiatives (e.g. the EU "Future & Emerging Technologies

(FET)" initiative) as well as at the core of industrial strategies of countries (e.g. the UK "Eight Great Technologies" industrial strategy).

Considerable research efforts (especially in scientometrics) have been also made on the development of methodological approaches for the early detection and analysis of emerging technologies. Nonetheless, within these policy and research efforts, emerging technologies are either loosely defined or often no definition at all is adopted. The seminar will propose a definition of emerging technologies based on five attributes: radical novelty, relatively fast growth, coherence, prominent impact, and uncertainty and ambiguity. These attributes will be used to elaborate a framework that can support the operationalisation (early detection and analysis) of emerging technologies based on publication and patent data.

The seminar will conclude with an integrative synthesis of the use of scientometric overlay mapping techniques to generate strategic intelligence on technological emergence for analysts and decision makers.
