To reinforce the research development power, it is necessary to clarify the methodology of formulating the R&D strategies. This paper focuses on the methodology of setting the themes for R&D. We propose the NeXT model, which consists of two stages: foresight of the priority areas based on the conflicts between near-future trends and verifying the priority areas. We show a method for calculating a Degree of Conflict using FURPS+ model. The NeXT model comes in compliance with the characteristics of the current society in which the link between technology and society is stronger than ever before.
