Roadmapping for Emerging Technologies – Applying Nanotechnology for Water Treatment

This paper deals with the creation of a new approach of roadmapping for emerging technologies on the example of applying nanotechnology for water treatment. The suggested approach combines revealing both possibilities of production and prospective consumer requirements in relation to innovative outcomes. The integrated roadmap allows revealing and estimating urgent challenges connected with insufficient water provision for citizens, setting goals for organisations working in this sphere and developing special measures to meet these challenges. This concept was used for roadmap development for nanotechnology water purification technologies with special emphasis on water treatment in Russia. The introduced approach is applicable not only for the sphere of emerging technologies but with some adaptation also for forecasting and strategic planning for corporations and government bodies.
