The aim was to take an independent and objective look at the subject of the vulnerability of ICT and using the best knowledge available explore the applications and implications of next-generation technologies on this issue.
The challenges of the foresight exercise were to:
- Set out visions of the future, define a range of possible outcomes, identify possible drivers, opportunities and threats, barriers to progress, and models for decision-making,
- Create networks of scientists, business people and policy makers who can act on the findings to influence the future,
- Set out some key challenges and engage those who can take them forward.
