Abstract

The expansion of the European Union has had a profound impact at all levels for the new Member States as well as for the future Candidate Countries. This impact has even been felt at the level of total food production chain. This is because all countries involved have recognised the importance of the economic and political opportunities which will emerge through the integration of the Central and Eastern European countries into the single European Market.

FUTUREFOOD6 is based on a foresight study for the future of the food industry in the partner regions. Foresight is an activity of anticipating future events or requirements, systematic and participatory process that gathers future intelligence and builds medium to long-term visions. Aimed at influencing current decision making process and mobilising joint actions, it assists in making choices in complex situations by discussing alternative options and bringing together the knowledge and experience of different communities. Their final report reveals the visions of the future based on expert views and analysis.
