The Institute for Prospective Technological Studies was set up in 1989. Its two main areas of work - the operation of a scientific/technical observatory and the execution of prospective studies - are described. The workshops and seminars held during 1990 are also reviewed briefly. The observatory is concerned with the collection, organisation and validation of the information needed for the regular assessment of the state-of-the-art of science and technology in Europe and for the early detection of new facts, breakthroughs and orientations in the scientific and technological field world-wide. The prospective studies concern the analysis and evaluation of information and its use for the study of prospects in specific fields of science and technology.
