Strengthening the dimension of foresight in the European Research Area: An outline Guide to opportunities offered by the Sixth European Community Research Framework Programme for supporting co-operation in the field of foresight in Europe

Funded under: FP6, OTH-ERA

Abstract

Foresight can be defined as a systematic, participatory, future intelligence gathering and medium-to-long-term vision-building process aimed at present-day decisions and mobilising joint actions. The term "Foresight" therefore represents the processes focusing on the interaction between science, technology and society.

This paper aims at informing researchers and institutes of the foresight community, as well as users of their results and sponsors in the public and private domain, on funding opportunities for their activities offered by the specific programmes implementing the 6th Research Framework Programme (FP6, 2002-2006) of the European Community. It explains briefly the research lines and chapters relevant to foresight and the funding instruments to be used. This paper is a draft edition of a working document produced by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Research.
