Technology and innovation futures

Foresight project looking at the scientific and technological areas that could transform the UK economy in the future.

The Government Office for Science is always working to identify pioneering technologies. We are focused on applications that give the UK a competitive edge and improve lives by delivering public services better. This review sets out how these technologies can boost UK productivity and reinforce our position as a world leading innovator.

We are currently working on the next issue of the review.
