Technology foresight remains a pressing issue in both academia and industry: startups, incumbents, institutions, and our society have to respond to an increasingly volatile and uncertain environment.  

Thereby, students should learn how to evaluate the disruptive potential of emerging digital technologies strategically. This new course will guide them through the fundamental principles of strategic technology foresight across multiple contexts. By concluding this course, they will be able to understand the relevance and application opportunities of strategic foresight for technologies that will potentially shape our future.
