In the second five bulletins of technological foresight in the sectors of aeronautics, biotechnology, ICTs, renewable energies and transport (automotive and logistics), different practical methodologies of implementation of technological foresight are explained and each region participating in the project describes how they are going to implement their regional studies on technological foresight based on those methodologies. At the same time, the four best practices of Brandenburg and Castilla y León were also published in January 2008. The best practices were “The technology transfer in Brandenburg” and “The sub-regional centres of the ZukunftsAgentur Brandenburg (ZAB)” for Brandenburg and “The Technology Parks of Castilla y León” and “The Regional Entity for Energy of Castilla y León” for Castilla y León. These bulletins and best practices can be downloaded in their English version both in .html and .pdf formats in the sectoral and best practices’ menus of the corresponding official project website http://www.before-project.org.
