Overview Edit

The European concept of Converging Technologies for the European Knowledge Society (CTEKS) adopts a demand-driven approach in which converging technologies respond to societal needs and demands. It places the emphasis on the agenda-setting process itself. Rather than letting the market call all the shots, the European approach favors a guided development where societal, safety and environmental aspects are incorporated into the decision-making process. It envisions that various European converging technologies research programs will be formulated, each addressing a different problem and each bringing together different technologies and technology-enabling sciences.
