About TechWatch

JISC Technology and Standards Watch (TechWatch) is a JISC Innovation Support service. We provide technology horizon scanning support for the UK higher and further education communities, mostly through the publication of peer reviewed reports. Our remit is to:

  • identify and track developments in Communications and Information Technology and in Standards which are critical to Higher and Further Education
  • commission work from experts from the community or beyond in the form of reports, briefings and other materials, on these technologies and standards, their development and the implications for HE/FE
  • disseminate information to the community on technologies and standards and their developments and implications
  • assist JISC to ensure that it is aware of and makes the most effective use of information on emerging technologies and standards
