Emerging Disruptive Technology Assessment Symposium (EDTAS)

The Emerging Disruptive Technology Assessment Symposium (EDTAS) series is a technology foresighting program under the Next Generation Technologies Fund.

It is designed to consider an emerging science and technology topic that will likely have a major impact – transformational or disruptive – for the Defence or National Security domains in the 20+ year timeframe.

DSTG partners with universities and industry to co-host these events, which are typically a mix of leading-edge presentations, thought-provoking workshops and keynote presentations.

In the past, symposium's have been held on topics such as:

  • Trusted Autonomous Systems
  • Information, Knowledge and Digital Disruption
  • Advanced Materials and Manufacturing
  • Human Biotechnologies
  • Space Technologies
  • Quantum Computing
