Emerging technologies are laying the groundwork for decades to come, with major impacts anticipated in every aspect of our lives. Canadians will have to work together to ensure that the right policies and institutions are in place to allow for a prosperous and resilient future. Policy Horizons Canada’s latest foresight study examines how digital, bio, nano and neuroscience technologies will shape the Canadian economy and society over the next 10 to 15 years.
Canadian policy makers would like to have a comprehensive overview of emerging technology shaping distinct areas of the Canadian economy.
Envisioning executed a joint research and summarized the perspective of 50+ experts about the state of tech development in Canada. The process included several thematic brainstorming sessions with industry experts. Each session began with Envisioning research input and resulted in a cross-checked list of technologies for six key industries.
The research results were published in Metascan 3, an report for public policy makers in the Canadian government and it helped the audience make more informed policy decisions.
