This article presents the results of a forecasting project funded by the European Community on the evolution of the technologies and its impact on society in the coming decade. The project requires the development of a methodology to assess the potential impact of technology evolution and provides a tool for decision makers to prioritize the allocation of research investments. A brief outline of some of the technology trajectories identified and possible technology disruptions are given.
