OBSERVING Emergence (OBSERVE)
In line with the mission of the European Commission’s Future and Emerging Technologies programme FET, the overarching aim of OBSERVE was to support Europe to grasp leadership early on in new and emerging technology areas that promise to renew the basis for European competitiveness and growth and that makes a difference for society in the decades to come. OBSERVE did support the FET mission by identifying new opportunities and directions for interdisciplinary research towards new and visionary technology of any kind.
For this purpose, OBSERVE set up an Observatory that screens novel emerging needs, practices, collaborations and solutions using a set of quantitative and qualitative methods of prospective analysis.
