|Development of genetic engineering in different areas of application 2018–2020.|
The Committee for the Future commissioned this report from Risto Linturi, the chief developer of the Committee for the Future’s technology foresight method “Radical Technology Inquiry” (RTI). The report identifies the key areas of genetic engineering and the areas of application related to it. It also briefly describes recent breakthroughs noted by Tulevaisuusvaliokunnan radikaalit teknologiat -joukkoistus (Radical technologies crowdsourcing group of the Committee for the Future) since the publication of the report ‘Societal transformation 2018–2037: 100 anticipated radical technologies, 20 regimes, case Finland’. The report starts with the summary and conclusions, which are explained in more concrete terms in the following chapters, along with their background. First, technological advancement is described separately for each technology, after which the significance of the technologies for key areas of application is examined.
