Denise's experience extends to leadership roles in cross-industry and professional organizational futures projects. Contributing to the advancement of applied futures for business development, Denise led a taskforce for the Management of Accelerated Technology Innovation (MATI), an industry-academic consortium, to assess and develop best practices for use of foresight in technology sourcing and technology roadmapping. She has also led best practice benchmarks at such ad-hoc cross-industry forums as the International Meeting of Futures Organizations and the Professional Futurists conference of the World Future Society. Denise received a BS in Electrical Engineering from Clarkson University and an MS in Studies of the Future from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. While studying in Houston, Denise developed and managed various futures projects for clients including Texas A&M University, the City of Houston, and the Kellogg Foundation through the program's Institute for Futures Research. She was also a Visiting Special Project Leader at the National University of Mexico (UNAM), Office of Advisors to the Rector where she developed program recommendations for the transfer of emerging sustainable technologies to the industrial sector. Alan Porter is Professor Emeritus of Industrial & Systems Engineering, and of Public Policy, at Georgia Tech, where he is Co-director of the Technology Policy and Assessment Center. He is also Director of R&D for Search Technology, Inc., Norcross, GA (producers of VantagePoint and Thomson Data Analyzer software). He is author or co-author of some 230 articles and books, including Tech Mining (Wiley, 2005) and Forecasting and Management of Technology (Wiley, 2011). Current research emphasizes "forecasting innovation pathways" for newly emerging technologies. This entails text mining of science, technology & innovation information resources to generate Competitive Technical Intelligence. Ozcan Saritas is a Professor of Innovation and Strategy at the National Research University, Higher School of Economics (HSE), Moscow; a Senior Research Fellow at the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research, University of Manchester; and editor-in-chief of "Foresight" - the journal of future studies, strategic thinking and policy. His research focuses upon innovation and policy research with particular emphasis on socio-economic and technological Foresight. With a PhD from the "Foresight and Prospective Studies Programme," he introduced the "Systemic Foresight Methodology", and has produced a number of publications on the topic. He has extensive work experience with the international organisations including United Nations (UNIDO and UNCTAD), OECD, and the European Commission. He has been involved in large scale national, multinational and corporate research and consultancy projects such as Research and Innovation Foresight for Europe 2030 (RIF2030); Russian S&T Foresight 2040; European Commission Anticipatory Governance Systems; Scanning for Emerging Science, Technology and Innovation issues (SESTI) and a Horizon Scanning project for the Rockefeller Foundation on the future of developmental issues. At the HSE, Ozcan is currently involved in the development of "An Intellectual Analytics System for Detecting Emerging Trends and Opportunities in STI Dynamics". Besides his research activities, Ozcan designs and delivers academic and executive education courses on Foresight, Innovation and STI Policy. Ozcan's contribution in this book was supported within the framework of the Basic Research Program at the National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE) and was funded within the framework of the subsidy granted to the HSE by the Government of the Russian Federation for the implementation of the Global Competitiveness Program.
