    Abstract

    The poster presents a mixed quantitative-qualitative FTA approach for identifying emerging technologies in complex systemic settings using "Arctic technology" as a case example. The "Arctic aspect" of emerging technologies is not to be understood as a function of one or two defining keywords, but it is actually an outcome of a network of functional conceptualisations across varied technological domains. The proposed approach has two steps: 1) the construction of a conceptual thematic network through qualitative expert workshops, and 2) quantitative patent analysis, which is based on the outcome of the qualitative phase. The approach enables to holistically show linkages and disconnections in a complex technology domain, and it can be used in emerging technology analysis in the context of various complex systemic domains, which are not easily conceptualised.
