Final Report - CONTECS (CONverging TECnologies and their impact on Social Sciences and Humanities)

Project ID: 28837
Funded under: FP6-CITIZENS

Abstract

This is the final report for the CONTECS project. The major findings of this expert group reflected the intention to develop a different approach to technological convergence to that pursued by a similar United States initiative. While the latter focuses strongly on enhancement of the individual human being, the European concept of 'converging technologies for the European knowledge society" (CTEKS) adopts a demand-driven approach in which converging technologies (CT) respond to societal needs and demands.
