Trendington – A European Discussion around the hottest trends in Science and Technology

November 14th 2019
CDTI-Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities, Madrid, Spain



Do you have a radical vision for a new technology concept? Join us to co-create with other players, learn about top 15 trends for future technologies & build networks for the future


PREFET is an EU-funded project about evidence-based detection of emerging technology trends with high-impact potential. It works towards systematically identify and inform new and emerging trending technologies, providing the responsible research and innovation (RRI) context for their successful implementation, and helping researchers improve their R&D integral processes.


After months carrying out an extensive technology scouting exercise open to wide consultation, top 15 trends will be presented by international experts in Madrid during November 14th, hosted by the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities, and with the participation of EC representatives. Networking and co-creation of potential visions around these trends and beyond will be actively motivated, and the context for potential support within the European Framework Programme of R&I will be described.


By joining this TRENDINGTON event, you will participate in a European discussion around hottest trends in science and technology, gain insights about future European research agendas (including research funding policy), and meet representants of the European Commission, National Contact Points for FET, and the experts engaged in the identification of top 15 technology trends. Moreover, TRENDINGTON will be a great opportunity to share knowledge, connect and build new ideas together, for which group dynamics will be proposed. Participation is free.
