The mission of Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) is to turn Europe's excellent science base into a competitive advantage by uncovering radically new technological possibilities.

It will help Europe to grasp leadership early on in new and emerging technology areas that promise to renew the basis for European competitiveness and growth and that will make a difference for society in the decades to come.

It will bring closer science, engineering and society and accelerate the transition from upstream research to technology development and transformational impact.

FET actions will help to create in Europe a fertile ground for responsible and dynamic multi-disciplinary collaborations on future and emerging technologies and for kick-starting new European research and innovation eco-systems around them.

FET has three main lines of activity that contribute, each in their own way, to achieving its mission.

• FET Open focuses on early-stage joint science and technology research

• FET Proactive nurtures specific emerging themes and scientific communities

• FET Flagships support ambitious large-scale, science-driven research
