The Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) in Seville, part of the Commission's Joint Research centre (JRC), has published an "Overview of recent European and non-European National Technology Foresight studies".

This latest report in the IPTS Technical Report Series presents a detailed overview of National Foresight exercises recently conducted, summarizing the main features and results of the Foresight reports studied. It also attempts to demonstrate how this vast stock of information can be "mined" and explored, for strategic techno-economic intelligence purposes, in order to gain detailed information at the level of specific issues and on the prospects of individual technologies.

The report is part of the on-going work of the IPTS in monitoring the developing practices of Foresight in science and technology, and in distilling policy-relevant issues from the predictions and viewpoints expressed.
