The Defence Science & Technology Group (DSTG) has recently established a dedicated Socio-Technical Futures Analysis effort to contribute to its Critical Technology Foresight capability in collaboration with the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet’s Critical Technology Policy Coordination Office (CTPCO), specifically focused on assessment of the societal implications of emerging and potentially disruptive technologies.
To support this effort, staff are conducting outreach within the academic and think-tank communities to establish the level of available expertise at the intersection of people, technology and society, as assessed against Australia’s Critical Technology List. This is intended to capture those working in the humanities and social-sciences, as well those with appropriate socially-focused backgrounds in business, law and science/engineering fields.
Parties interested in projects in line with any of the above Socio-Technical Futures Analysis Research Focus Areas should complete the form below as an expression of interest by no later than 30 September 2022.
