New study published on Key Enabling Technologies in transitions

The study by Anna Waßenhoven, Dr. Michael Rennings, Dr. Natalie Laibach, and Prof. Dr. Stefanie Bröring, published in Technological Forecasting and Social Change, explores the concept of Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) within policy strategies, highlighting their role in driving industrial transitions. The research employs patent indicators to distinguish KETs from emerging technologies and General Purpose Technologies (GPTs). The findings aim to assist managers and policymakers in identifying and promoting promising technologies for economic growth and transition processes, guiding funding schemes and research efforts.
