The seminar on which this book is based was held within the framework of Eurocourses at the JRC. It emphasised the relationship between technological forecasting and industrial innovation. National and corporate strategies aimed at industrial innovation, for the sake of productivity and competitiveness, should build upon technological forecasting. The book consists of three parts. Part I deals with the innovation processes and models and tackles some forecasting methodologies, such as those based upon economic driving forces and technological competition. Part II is a review of prospective innovation in the short term in key generic technologies. Part III emphasises the role in the innovation process of various innovation practitioners and their need for and practice of technological forecasting.
