Details

The government has made a commitment to making the UK a great science power. Dstl is supporting that ambition by changing its approach and structure to focus on identifying and developing generation-after-next-technology. Guided by the Ministry of Defence Science and Technology Strategy we will help shape the future of UK defence and security. To do this we will need to explore what the future might look like, grapple with complexity and uncertainty and be ready to exploit the opportunities the future might hold.

This guide is an opportunity for you to learn more about the future and how you might incorporate it in your work. If we anticipate the future we are much more likely to take action and make decisions today that will really stand the test of time.

Unfogging the Future is one of a series of biscuit books written by experts at Dstl, designed to be dipped into and easily digested - just like a biscuit with tea.
