Critical technologies

in December 2023

Our critical technologies coverage for December 2023 spans those technologies, and their component parts, supply chains and – importantly – emerging risks and considerations affecting each.  In specific, we capture coverage of: critical minerals and rare earths; space launch, satellites and related tech; supply chain issues whether in availability or transport; and the underpinning digital concerns that are now a fundamental component of any discussion.

Critical technology news items captured in December 2023 spanned: alternatives to lithium batteries tech; semiconductor manufacturing, funding and the mitigation of related supply chain risks; quantum computing and cryptography, and related cybercrime risks; the rise of RISC-V as an advanced-microchips architecture; and many more.
