EMERGING TECHNOLOGY
Emerging technologies are technologies that are perceived as capable of changing the status quo. These technologies are generally new but include older technologies that are still controversial and relatively undeveloped in potential.

Emerging technologies include a variety of technologies such as educational technology, information technology, nanotechnology, biotechnology, cognitive science, psychotechnology, robotics, and artificial intelligence.
UK EMERGING TECHNOLOGY
The UK has one of the best research bases in the world. It is a fertile source of new knowledge, discovery and invention, helping to create totally new technologies that will change our world in the future.

UK EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES & INDUSTRIES STRATEGY
The UK is host to one of the best research bases in the world. It is a fertile source of new knowledge, discovery and invention, helping to create totally new technologies that will change our world in the future.

The emerging technologies and industries programme seeks to identify the early-stage technologies that will lead to the new products, processes and services of tomorrow – those with the potential to lead to the creation of completely new billion-pound industries.

The strategy is based around four strategic themes: to identify and evaluate emerging technologies with disruptive potential; to create a coordinated programme; to accelerate the journey to market; and to build critical mass and nurture capability.

CATAPULTS & OTHER TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION CENTRES
Over the last 6 years the UK goverment has built different networks, for exampele,  Catapults (https://www.digitalcatapultcentre.org.uk).
These are technology and innovation centres that bridge the gap between universities and businesses.

Catapults help businesses undertake late-stage R&D and commercialise traditional academic research. The Catapults in this sector include the Digital Catapult and the Satellite Applications Catapult.  It also includes the Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult

The Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT) at Queen’s University Belfast is a hub for research and innovation in cyber security.
