Advancing Scientific Discovery through Collaboration across Research Domains



- Emerging Technologies

Emerging technologies are technologies whose development, practical applications, or both are still largely unrealized. These technologies are generally new but also include older technologies finding new applications. Emerging technologies are often perceived as capable of changing the status quo. 

Emerging technologies are characterized by radical novelty (in application even if not in origins), relatively fast growth, coherence, prominent impact, and uncertainty and ambiguity. In other words, an emerging technology can be defined as "a radically novel and relatively fast growing technology characterised by a certain degree of coherence persisting over time and with the potential to exert a considerable impact on the socio-economic domain(s) which is observed in terms of the composition of actors, institutions and patterns of interactions among those, along with the associated knowledge production processes. Its most prominent impact, however, lies in the future and so in the emergence phase is still somewhat uncertain and ambiguous."


- EITA's Vision and Mission for Emerging Technology Research

"Emerging technologies" are those that lie between new scientific discoveries and fully commercialized technologies. It should involve a deep understanding of the technology, some type of prototype, or better yet some startup working on commercializing the technology. But above all, the technology needs to be exciting, open up new opportunities in chemistry and beyond, and help solve major global problems - which is the focus of EITA's vision and mission. The term "chemistry" is used in its broadest sense to include materials science, nanotechnology and biochemistry. Emerging technologies are discoveries that hover between nascent eureka moments in the lab and industrial applications.


- Emerging Technology Areas

Emerging technologies are those technical innovations which represent progressive developments within a field for competitive advantage.
