This study was performed for the Directorate for Technology Policy, Ministry of Economic Affairs of the Netherlands. The two major purposes of the study were to (1) identify technologies of strategic importance to the Netherlands (based on a systematic global review of the future supply of technologies, the needs of Dutch industry, and the importance of the technologies to Dutch economic goals), and (2) assess the Dutch knowledge infrastructure available to support the development and use of the strategic technologies, and identify where problems in the knowledge supply exist or might arise. The information produced by the study is being used by the government in its dialogue with the business community and research networks concerning priority setting and investments in knowledge development. The project produced five reports — three are in English, and two are in Dutch. This report provides and overview of the work that was carried out, the information gathered, insights gained, issues raised, and conclusions reached. It includes an Executive Summary, which summarizes the work and presents observations drawn from the detailed information contained in all of the reports.
