The fifth series takes us on a new voyage of discovery into the world of cutting-edge science and technology. We report on the latest discoveries, devices and innovations that will shake up our lives, our businesses and economies in the decades ahead.

Horizons focuses on the latest developments that have the potential to transform whole industries and whole sections of society, improving the lives of many around the world. We highlight disruptive technologies before they begin to exert their influence on the global economy and society at large.

Today there are countless ideas and inventions that try to answer the big questions that mankind now faces, yet only a few will make a real difference in the coming years. The aim of Horizons is to cut through the noise and assess their potential impact.

Some areas of science are now surprising us, from biomimicry and our ability to mirror nature in technology, to harnessing static electricity. We’re trying to connect up the developing world to the Internet with a vast array of new micro-satellites and develop a handheld laboratory to diagnose disease instantly. Mankind’s ingenuity knows no bounds! We also call upon some of our greatest minds from around the world – global CEOs, scientists and innovators, business people and entrepreneurs who able to bring these new discoveries to life.
