Future Human

Future Human will explore the use of science and technology for human enhancement. Only a true transdisciplinary approach can fully understand the opportunities, limits, challenges, and risks of using scientific and technological advancement to restore or improve performance/function and overcome current limits of body and mind. What and how the body can be augmented defines the possible. The legality, politics and ethics considers whether it should be done, and business and society ultimately accept it or not. The opportunities that human augmentation provides for changing how we work, how we stay healthy, and how we live and experience our everyday lives crosses multiple government strategies, Research Councils and Challenge Funds, and provides scope for broad collaboration outside of academia.
