An emerging technology or industry is one that is only just emerging from the science base. It allows you to do something that was not possible before, or was only possible in theory.
That means it has the potential to improve the way we do things. It can generate new sources of wealth and disrupt global markets
Our strategy aims to identify these emerging technologies and industries to create national programmes in these fields. This will create opportunities for businesses to establish the skills and capability for the UK to be fastest to global markets.
