Abstract

The European Foresight Monitoring Network (EFMN) is an initiative inspired and financed by the European Commission in the framework of the Foresight Knowledge Sharing Platform. It was started in 2004 as a service to foresight practitioners and policy makers in Europe and beyond. The EFMN approach is based on the continuous process of monitoring and collecting data on foresight exercises conducted not only in Europe, but in other regions of the world as well. This information is collected using experts within the international foresight community. One of the tasks of the network is the production of Foresight briefs. These are short 3-page descriptions of interesting, recent, or ongoing foresight exercises and forward looking studies. The present publication is a collection of the first 120 EFMN briefs that were written between 2004 and 2007. It is a very useful information and dissemination tool addressed not only to the Foresight community but also to policy-makers.
