The potential of regional foresight: final report of the STRATA-ETAN Expert Group : "Mobilising the regional foresight potential for an enlarged European Union - an essential contribution to strengthen the strategic basis of the ERA"

Funded under: FP5-HUMAN POTENTIAL

Abstract

Foresight is growing in importance across the European Union as a means to plan and channel scientific and technological developments with the aim of improving economic competitiveness and the quality of life. There is consensus that the regional level is often the most significant arena in which to act to improve economic performance. Regional foresight exercises are therefore a critical tool for regional authorities to employ. This final report presents the recommendations of an Expert Group set up by the European Commission in 2001 to consider regional foresight.
