The "Future and Emerging Digital Technologies" session of the ICT 2018 Conference will explore the next disruptive digital technologies that are expected to bring transformative advances to science, economy and society.

Ground-breaking ideas, that can change the world we live in, need time and space to grow. They also need a concerted action – bringing together the key players to create an interdisciplinary team over a long enough time and with sufficient support to achieve results.

For the last 30 years, the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme has done just that by supporting radical technologies, new talents, scientific and technological leaders and innovators through actions ranging from small exploratory research projects up to large-scale, long-term Flagships.

This session will explore how FET has, over the last 30 years, converted excellent science into new technologies leading to disruptive products. It will also look at the future and discuss the next digital technologies that are expected to bring transformative advances to science, economy and society and how Europe will continue to support the exploratory research necessary for them to emerge.

Don't miss the opportunity to hear top researchers' views on your digital future.
