Topic Refinement: objective & guiding criteria 

As part of our ongoing effort to chart and shape the evolving landscape of future and emerging technologies, we have launched a public consultation to identify promising and potentially game-changing directions for future technological research. As a result we received more than 160 ideas.
We have done an exhaustive analysis and produced an informal clustering of these ideas into broad topics that have potential to generate interesting research beyond established approaches as well as new synergies among a wide range of disciplines, ultimately to contribute to a better future for all, and to put Europe on a new road towards future technological competitiveness in the next 20 years.
We are now inviting anybody interested to submit ideas, before April 5, 2013 on how to fill them in, in more precise terms. To contribute, follow the links below and provide us with a short statement on how, from your background and interest, you would contribute to this topic. We suggest that you use a few 2-to-3-line bullet points to make more concrete what you would expect a project to address under this topic.
