Grand Science and Technology challenges for the future FET-Flagships
On 15 December 2016, Commissioner G√ľnther H. Oettinger hosted a round table to explore candidate topics for future FET Flagships and ensure that top level priorities on grand science and technology challenges are taken into consideration.

Participants to the round table were high level representatives from Member States administrations and from the scientific and industrial communities. Together, they identified major Science and Technology challenges that could be addressed by future FET-Flagships in key areas like "ICT for connected society", "health and life science", "environment, climate and energy".

Read the full blog post of Commissioner Oettinger "Addressing major scientific and technological challenges of the future" on the event.

The round table follows intense preparatory work that started with an open public consultation early 2016. Find out more about the results to the consultation in the blog post of Thomas Skordas, acting Director, Digital Excellence & Science infrastructure.

As a next step in the Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020, we will launch a competitive call for 4 to 6 preparatory actions for future Flagships within these areas

The Future & Emerging Technologies (FET) Flagships are visionary, large-scale, science-driven research initiatives which tackle scientific and technological challenges across scientific disciplines. Find out more about the current FET flagships, Graphene and the Human Brain Project.
