Final Report - FORTRANSRIS (A new transregional foresight model for the regional innovation strategies (RIS))

Project ID: 43015
Funded under: FP6-SUPPORT


The changes on the technology and markets are getting faster and harder. To give a effective answer to these changes it is necessary both companies and public authorities to have a long term vision which go far from the regional and national scope. Foresight is the tool that can offer this long-term vision in a systematic way and specifically the 'trans-regional foresight' can help to increase the integration of the R&D regional policies under the EU framework.

This final report has been written in view of the experience obtained during the FORTRANSRIS project, and is intended to be helpful tool for readers to wish to compare theory with practice. The lessons learnt were not all necessarily learnt as a result of barriers hindering the achievement of the project's objectives or its failures, they are also the result of positive observations and objectives reached during the execution of the project.
