ICT - Future and emerging technologies
A continuing well established successful ICT scheme

FET is the ICT incubator and pathfinder for new ideas and themes for long-term research in the area of information and communication technologies. Its mission is to promote high risk research, offset by potential breakthrough with high technological or societal impact.

FET-Open is a 'roots-up' approach for exploring promising visionary ideas that can contribute to challenges of long term importance for Europe. The scheme stimulates non-conventional targeted exploratory research cutting across all disciplines and acts as a harbour for exploring and nurturing new research trends and helping them mature in emerging research communities.

FET-Proactive is a 'top-down' approach fostering novel non-conventional approaches and foundational research in selected themes in response to emerging societal and industrial needs. The scheme supports initial developments on long-term research and technological innovation, and helps related research communities to develop and mature.

FET Flagships are ambitious large-scale, science-driven, research initiatives that aim to achieve a visionary goal. The scientific advance should provide a strong and broad basis for future technological innovation and economic exploitation in a variety of areas, as well as novel benefits for society.
