This guide is part of the European Commission's efforts to promote the strategic use of technology foresight in an enlarged EU. Foresight at a regional level can play a catalytic role in the establishment of initiatives and framework conditions conducive to innovation. It aims to provide inputs that can enhance strategy and policy planning in regions, municipalities and localities. The guide explains how Foresight can be used, especially in regions and sub-national territories, and it sets out different approaches to Foresight, and when and where their use may be appropriate.

The original (Practical Guide to Regional Foresight) was an output of the EC's FOREN project and was written for all regions in Europe. This French version of the guide has been substantially rewritten, and several new sections have been added that deal with specific issues affecting France.
