The Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme aims to initiate radically new lines of technology through unexplored collaborations between advanced multidisciplinary science and cutting-edge engineering.

The FET programme focuses on research beyond what is known, accepted or widely adopted and supports novel and visionary thinking to open promising paths towards radically new technological possibilities. Particularly, FET funds interdisciplinary collaborations that seek real cross-fertilisation and deep synergies between the widest range of advanced sciences (including the life sciences, social sciences and humanities) and cutting-edge engineering disciplines.

The FET programme consists of 3 complementary lines of activity in which calls for proposals are launched:

  • FET Open
  • FET Proactive
  • FET Flagships
