Better foresight and understanding of the next technological and scientific disruptions
WHAT IS AT STAKE ?
Technology has become an essential part of our economies, societies and democracies, with a central role in any security or geopolitical topic. Emerging technologies are disrupting every sector and reframing many issues, reshuffling the cards of national and international security. It is major battleground in big power competition and allowing for smaller countries, rogue states, global platforms and terrorist groups to achieve strategic relevance and project their power and values.
Anticipation is of paramount importance to lead strategically, while acceleration of time is making this increasingly challenging. And the pace of technological evolution and even more the interconnections between different technologies (“deeptech”) make it increasingly difficult for leaders to understand the tech and its consequences.
WHAT IS THE MSC-JEDI TECH RADAR ABOUT
The Munich Security Conference, and Joint European Disruptive Initiative, the European ARPA, willl launch their first Tech Radar on the following technologies:
QPS (QUANTUM POSITIONING SYSTEM)
The MSC-JEDI Tech Radar will be a quarterly high-level briefing on the Top 5 risks with the RIBS structure (Relevance, Impact, Briefing, Solutions & Options). It will also include ad-hoc, sector specific briefs with key leaders and partners of the MSC (remote & in various European and global capitals). A yearly presentation will take place at the MSC, and the takeaways of the MSC-JEDI Tech Radar will be included in a section of the MSC Yearly Report. The tone of the Tech Radar is factual, strategic and not nerdy, confidential, geared towards anticipation & action.
