Evaluation of critical and emerging technologies for the elaboration of a security research agenda

Objective

"The ETCETERA project is a contribution to effective and efficient security research planning on a European level. Its aim is three-fold:
1. to develop novel methodologies for future strategic research planning,
2. to identify risks and potential benefits associated with Critical Dependencies and Emerging Technologies with security implications, and
3. to recommend research plans to deal with these risks and potential benefits.

The two issues raised in the topic are treated in two separate but interrelated project strands:
Strand 1 deals with Critical Technologies and Dependencies. In a process that involves technical
experts, end-users, and other stakeholders, technologies that are indispensable for security today
and in the near future are identified. In a next step, an analysis is performed to evaluate in which of
these critical technologies member states of the EU are dependent on non-EU contributions. A
research agenda to alleviate these critical dependencies through alternative technological solutions will be developed. Methods for the detection and elimination of Critical Dependencies are developed and described.
Strand 2 looks further into the future. Technologies that are now ""emerging"" will be scrutinised to
evaluate future security implications. A research agenda to keep up, and in some cases take the
lead, in these technological areas will be developed to avoid future critical dependencies of the EU.
Several well established and some novel methods will be combined to perform these tasks. The
methods are compared and/or assessed to improve future strategic research planning.

ETCETERA will thus both provide solutions for current problems in strategic security research
planning, and develop methodologies for future research planning efforts."
