Charles Featherston


My research focuses on research into technology foresight and strategies across firms, with a particular focus on the implications for, and role of, public policy. I am currently working to theoretically underpinning technology foresight drawing from areas including innovation systems, engineering systems, technology management, strategic management, and the economics of innovation. I am also characterising and understanding the role of community-led emerging technology strategies and their implications for technology and innovation policy. This is complemented by work that aims to understand the major risks technologies face when moving from the base science through to final, full-scale deployment.
