The primary tasks of the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (PROMPT) are monitoring new developments in science and technology, and strategic analyses of new areas of science and technology. This report documents prospective studies carried out by PROMPT in 1992, which covered four main themes: (i) energy - systems and technologies for the long-term future; (ii) environment - industrial opportunities and constraints; (iii) transport - space markets, high speed trains; (iv) industrial competitivity - evaluation of EC strategies. The activities of the European Science and Technology Observatory (ESTO) set up by PROMPT are also described, with progress on the R&D projects database (QUI QUOD) and global change research being reported.
