Technology has affected and is still affecting people of all age brackets from all over the world. To improve confidence in your technology plans, CEB’s Emerging Technology Roadmap breaks through the vendor hype to give you a real-world look at technologies that organizations are currently piloting, planning, and deploying from now through the end of 2017.
Its purpose was to formulate and execute research and development projects to expand the frontiers of technology and science, with the aim to reach beyond immediate military requirements. Proposals must show how project success will improve business growth and productivity and/or encourage export opportunities, including for at least one UK small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) involved in the project. The Enabling and Enabling Technologies programme brings together technology and end users to enhance productivity and efficiency across the UK economy.

Even in wet climates, it’s important to take steps now to cut building water use and to reuse as much water as possible, effectively closing the water cycle within the building itself. Science fiction has criticized developing and future technologies, but also inspires innovation and new technology. Learn how the distributed ledger behind Bitcoin is becoming the foundational technology for all kinds of payments, transactions and contracts. We advise university groups to contact their technology transfer office if they require guidance.
In the next five years, schools will begin to redesign learning spaces to accommodate more immersive, hands-on activities, and begin to rethink how schools work in order to keep pace with the demands of the 21st century workforce and equip students with future-focused skills, according to The NMC/CoSN Horizon Report: 2016 K-12 Edition, published by the New Media Consortium and the Consortium for School Networking.
Drones are essentially robots operating in three, rather than two, dimensions; advances in next-generation robotics technology will accelerate this trend. We invite submissions from industry, academia, and government researchers for this Emerging Technologies Showcase. The Bay Area is an energetic hub for both U.S. and international business, recognized as the world’s technology center and the West Coast’s principal banking and financial epicenter. This could be useful in clothes or footwear, for example, as well as in healthcare products, such as implants designed to change in the human body. Advances in robotics technology are making human-machine collaboration an everyday reality.
