High Tech

The high tech industry is a driving force for innovations across all industries. And R&D is shifting more towards developing the hardware, firmware and software that enables and enhances the performance of any product, as well as developing services that companies can sell to support these products, providing customers with additional features and improved usability (Source: PwC, 2017 Global Innovation 1000 study).

Multidisciplinary research is critical

Innovation is a result of crossing disciplinary boundaries – analysis shows that research cannot be done in isolation. Don’t miss out on critical research by relying only on the fields of science you are familiar with.

For example, a search on Scopus with the terms ‘Internet of Things + Security’ ScienceDirect generates 4,537 results in a multitude of disciplines:
