3D printing will build the future predicts Foresight


Technologies including ‘smart’ fabrics and 3D printing have been highlighted as some of the innovations that could drive UK economic growth, according to the latest Foresight report.
British scientists and experts have identified more than 50 new and developing technologies that could generate billions for the economy provided Government and businesses “seize the opportunities”.
Minister for universities and Science David Willetts said: “Looking ahead, far beyond the usual political cycle, is the central plank of our industrial strategy. Providing industry with greater certainty helps companies make long-term investment decisions.
“By helping take the ground-breaking technologies of tomorrow through to market, we can carve out a competitive advantage for the UK and meet the challenges ahead.”
The report reprises the technologies identified in the 2010 Foresight report and updates them to reflect recent developments and emerging trends. Findings are based on interviews and surveys of leading members of industry and academia.
