A method is proposed to evaluated strategies for national and regional technology policy development. The method uses technology forecasts and economic indicators in conjunction with a technological synergy assessment. System-level technologies are grouped using hierarchical cluster analysis techniques. Groups of system-level technologies are identified that have favorable rates of sales growth and high market share.
