The KETs Observatory provides both quantitative and qualitative information on the development and deployment of Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) and supplies European and national policy-makers and business stakeholders on a regular basis with reliable and representative data and analyses. The KETS Observatory measures, compares and analyses country performance in each of the 6 KETs identified in the KETs Communication COM (2012) 3413): nanotechnology, industrial biotechnology, photonics, micro- and nanoelectronics, advanced materials and advanced manufacturing technologies. The observatory covers five indicator areas: technology (based on patents), production, demand, trade and businesses. In addition to data-based analytical reports, the Observatory also collects and reports information on technology trends, innovation case studies, events, new publications, policy developments and intelligence sources.
