Working closely with advanced manufacturing and materials business, policymakers and innovators, the Regional Technology foresight project will develop a set of practices and processes for identifying, transferring, and integrating technological innovations that can help firms maximise competitiveness and sustainability in the global marketplace.


Focusing on the Sheffield City region, the Regional Technology Foresight project is a two-year ESRC-funded project aimed at identifying the future technologies that will have the greatest impact on advanced manufacturing and materials sectors in Sheffield, and at building a consensus about how best to adapt and exploit these technologies.
