  3. 3. The purpose of this report is to highlight examples of the kinds of jobs, careers and professions that arise in the period from 2010 to 2030. <br />The report was commissioned as part of the Science: [So what? So everything] campaign which is funded by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills of UK. <br />Purpose of the Study <br />
  4. 4. The study highlights that we are entering a new era for science and technology. <br />The centrality of science and technology in helping to tackle the most pressing planetary challenges: poverty, clean water, environment, human health, climate change, energy supply and transport. <br />An Era of Opportunity <br />
  5. 5. Conduct a “horizon scan” to identify a sample of key advances in science in the period f 2010 - 2030. <br />Identify a long list of “jobs of the future‘ - highlighting “Jobs that don‘t yet Exist‘ and current jobs that could become more prominent over the next two decades.<br />Develop more detailed profiles of a representative sample of twenty jobs.<br />Objectives<br />
  6. 6. The study chose to adopt an existing scanning framework which it’s used and kept updated on a continuous basis. This framework takes the key global trends and developments shaping our world and groups them under the following ten key patterns of change:<br />1. Demographic Shifts<br />2. Economic Turbulence<br />3. Politics Gets Complex<br />4. Business 3.0 – An Expanding Agenda<br />5. Science and Technology go Mainstream<br />6. Generational Crossroads<br />7.

  8. 8. Due to the huge advances being made in bio-tissues, robotics and plastics, the creation of high performing body parts - from organs to limbs - will soon be possible, requiring body part makers, body part stores and body part repair shops.<br />Body Part Maker<br />
  9. 9. Advances in nanotechnology offer the potential for a range of sub-atomic 'nanoscale' devices, inserts and procedures that could transform healthcare. <br />A new range of nano-medicine specialists will be required to administer these treatments.<br />Nano-Medic <br />
  10. 10. Pharmers are the next generation of farmers who will raise crops and livestock that have been genetically engineered to improve food yields and “grow” therapeutic proteins, pharmaceuticals and chemicals.<br />Pharmer of Genetically Engineered Crops and Livestock <br />
