Clarivate Analytics plc, a global leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to accelerate the pace of innovation, the Chinese Academy of Engineering, and the Higher Education Press of China has released their joint report ‘Engineering Fronts 2019’ to identify the hottest areas in engineering research and development. This is the third annual collaborative report between the three organisations, launched at a joint forum held at the Chinese Academy of Engineering in Beijing.
The 2019 report identifies 93 global engineering research fronts and 94 engineering development fronts spanning nine fields of research, aligned with the nine academic divisions under the Chinese Academy of Engineering. The nine fields include mechanical and vehicle engineering; information and electronic engineering; chemical, metallurgical, and materials engineering; energy and mining engineering; civil, hydraulic, and architectural engineering; environmental and light textile engineering; agriculture; medicine and health; and engineering management.
In the report a front is defined as a main direction which should be followed for the development of future engineering technology. The engineering research fronts are identified based on citation data from the Web of Science Core Collection as well as nomination by experts. The engineering development fronts are identified based on the global patent information found in the Derwent Innovation database, as well as nomination by experts or patent analysis by patent industry peers.
