Emerging Technology Observatory

The Emerging Technology Observatory is a new effort led by CSET’s data team. The goal of the ETO is to build tools and datasets that make it easier to understand and track global trends in research and innovation. Our work will also include expanding existing tools like CSET’s Map of Science based on user feedback.

Leveraging CSET’s unique data holdings and infrastructure, the ETO will increase visibility into emerging technology trends and inform decision-making in areas such as:

The ETO takes inspiration from all of CSET’s lines of research, but is primarily motivated by the needs and experiences of its external user community. If you would like to discuss ideas you have for new ETO products or would like to share feedback on existing data products, please reach out to ETO’s Technical Lead, Jennifer Melot, at jennifer.melot@georgetown.edu.
