Thinking, debating and shaping the future: Foresight for Europe

Funded under: FP6, OTH-ERA


This is the final report of the High Level Expert Group on Developing Foresight, which was constituted by the European Commission to strengthen the strategic basis of the European Research Area (ERA). The group was set up to prepare a report on options for supporting a broad spectrum of Foresight related activities, which contribute to the implementation of ERA and the Lisbon strategy, and complement and strengthen related national and regional activities, including those that might be supported by the next Research Framework Programme (FP6, 2002-2006).

Foresight activities aim to promote a new culture of future-oriented thinking in society in order to cope with accelerated social and technological change. The report outlines opportunities offered by FP6 for supporting cooperation in the field of identifying promising future trends in science and technology in Europe. It identifies the research priorities relevant to foresight and the funding instruments that can be used.
