Project: 
FETFX
Programme: 
Horizon2020 FET Programme
Period: 
2019-2021
Sector: 
FET
01
The Challenge: 

The Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme has been intensively stimulating FET researchers and FET community to the foundation and consolidation of the next promising technologies by conducting high-risk, long-term, multidisciplinary and collaborative frontier research. The Horizon2020 FET Programme has provided support to technological research projects, representing the incubator of new ideas and themes for long-term research and breakthrough innovation in diverse and undiscovered areas of the Information and Communication Technologies, Material Sciences, Physical and Chemical Sciences, Biotechnologies and Health, Energy and Environmental Engineering, etc.

02
Solutions: 
FETFX proposes an innovative and customized communication and outreach strategy, based on the previous efforts made by the EFFECT project and taking advantage from the experience gathered by other Coordination and Support Actions, such as COFET and FEAT participated by some of FETFX partners, funded under the FET programme in both Seventh Framework Programme and Horizon 2020. And to stimulate debate and collaboration among multiple stakeholders through dedicated community building and multistakeholder outreach actions.
03
Impacts: 

FETFX expects to strengthen globally the European leadership in the early exploration of visionary, new and emerging technologies with a strong engagement of scientists, citizens, innovators and policy makers. It also wants to improve long-term innovation potential in Europe. There is an abundance of novel ideas and a wide range of actors ready to take them forward across Europe, but it is necessary to engage in interdisciplinary research collaboration and to take up responsible R&I practices (education, gender, long-term societal, ethical and legal implications).
