Technology foresight: anticipating future impact
THE GROWING IMPORTANCE OF TECHNOLOGY FORESIGHT What is technology foresight?
GROWTH IN A NET ZERO WORLD
Government action, at both a national and international level, has therefore set the playing field for companies, in many cases radically transforming the landscape they currently operate in. The onus is now on companies, particularly in asset-intensive industries such as energy, oil & gas, chemicals, industrials, construction, steel and cement, to transform their business models and operations if every country’s Net Zero pledges are to be delivered on. For example:
Paving the way for green hydrogen
Key considerations for green H2 deployment Green hydrogen (H2) has become a key topic on the agenda of policy makers and industrial players, driven both by the global decarbonization push and the commercial opportunities that it could bring. Although ambitious targets have been set and multiple projects announced, the road toward the green H2 economy is contingent on several critical conditions across the policy, supply, infrastructure, and demand front, which we explore in this Viewpoint.
The National Innovation Ecosystem
Innovation is key in driving social and economic development and bridging the wealth gap between emerging and developed countries. Over the last 50 years, only a few countries, such as South Korea and Singapore, have succeeded in unlocking the full benefits of nation-wide innovation. Instrumental to their success is a systematic approach tackling innovation in a holistic manner that captures policy, governance, innovation engines and innovation enablers to shape their innovation ecosystem and bridge systemic and market gaps.
