This project aims to deepen the understanding of how new technologies emerge. Technologies are developed in distributed epistemic networks that align and misalign to varying degrees. In the case of emergent fields, desirable technological developments are often hindered as a result of this lack of alignment. Hence there is a role for public policy for supporting the coordination of the networks. This project aims to fill this evidence gap and map how these networks develop, align and misalign.
