Study on methodology, work plan and roadmap for cross-cutting KETs activities in Horizon 2020
The main scope of the study “Methodology, work plan and roadmap for cross-cutting KETs activities in Horizon 2020”, briefly called RO-cKETs, has been to produce a shared methodology and a proposal for a cross-cutting KETs roadmap and work plan for the European Commission, which will provide input to the preparation of the cross-cutting KETs part of Horizon 2020. Integration between Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) will be essential for economic growth, competitiveness and innovation in Europe in the coming years. As input to Horizon 2020, the study outlines how the combination of different Key... Enabling Technologies could contribute to address the challenges facing European industry, economy and society. Taking the demand side as a starting point, the study should help the Commission to identify the most promising areas of innovation for cross-cutting KETs that address clear industrial and market needs in a broad number of industrial sectors. This has been based, among other things, on desk research and interviews, as well as workshops with industrial stakeholders, workshops with policy makers, and the validation of findings through surveys involving both KETs experts as well as industrial stakeholders.
