The radical innovation breakthrough inquirer
This report describes 100 Radical Innovation Breakthroughs. They are potentially important cross-cutting, disruptive innovations that may exert strong impact on global value creation and offer important solutions to societal needs. This set of emerging developments was developed through procedure combining machine learning algorithms and human evaluation. After successive waves of selection and refinement, the resulting 100 emerging topics were subjected to several assessment procedures including expert consultation and analysis of related patents and publications. Having analysed the potential importance of each of these innovations for Europe, their current maturity and the relative strength of Europe in related R&D, some general policy recommendations are made. The collection of Radical Innovation Breakthroughs constitutes important intelligence material that can inform strategic planning in research and innovation policy, industry and enterprise policy, and local development policy.
