Assessment and final selection of technologies

In short

This report presents the methods and results of the assessment process that enabled TechEthos to select the technology families upon which it will focus its work.

16 shortlisted technologies were assessed qualitatively with the support of a survey and expert interviews. An impact assessment matrix was produced and validated by project partners and external experts. This resulted in the selection of “Climate Engineering”, “Digital Extended Reality” and “Neurotechnologies” technology families as the focus of the project.
