Report "Key Technologies 2015" of 85 key technologies in seven economic sectors: a prospective and insight for promising, creative and innovative policy decisions
The fourth edition of the "Key Technologies 2015" study aims to identify strategic segments of our economy and to conduct an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the development of these technologies in France. It is intended for trainers who want to offer perspectives, for business leaders and executives looking for growth drivers and finally for public decision-makers, in their choices and decision-making to prepare for the future.
This technology foresight study "Key Technologies 2015" presents 85 key technologies with applications in seven economic sectors. The most relevant organizations were associated in each of the fields investigated to make the Key Technologies 2015 study a strategic analysis and structuring tool.
It is the result of numerous organized exchanges with more than 250 specialists, experts, representatives of the socio-economic world on the challenges facing our society both on the national territory and on the world markets. Under the supervision of a strategic committee chaired by Denis RANQUE, President of the Cercle de l'industrie, it mobilized more than 250 experts, whom I would like to thank for their contribution, and took into account the results of several works, such as the "France 2025" foresight exercise conducted under the aegis of the Centre d'analyse stratégique, or the national research and innovation strategy.
Each of the sectors described in this book is accompanied by a monograph that explains the background and associated issues, the major trends and key technologies in the sector, and France's position in these areas. Recommendations drawn up at the end of the work carried out by the various groups of experts are formulated to propose avenues for reflection.

This study, carried out at regular intervals, has thus become a reference in the "toolbox" of national public policies for innovation and business competitiveness.
The key technologies are presented in a very synthetic form describing the technology, its applications, its state of diffusion, the state of competition and the players associated with it. Finally, these technologies are positioned in relation to market access time, level of attractiveness and the various issues that concern them.
