The CIVISTI project will identify new emerging issues for European Science and Technology by uncovering European citizens' visions of the future and transform these into relevant long term science, technology and innovation issues, which are of relevance for European policies of S&T and for the development of FP8. The CIVISTI project will do this by a) consult national citizen panels through an informed deliberation process, focussing on long term visions, needs and concerns of the citizens; b) develop an analytical model for transformation of the visions into relevant issues for future science and technology; c) by use of the analytical model, through stakeholder and expert participation processes, analyse the citizen visions and transform them into posible priorities for research programmes; d) validate the priorities through a second round of citizen consultation. The project will develop a novell citizen participation process with the aim of making cost-effective citizen participation possible in foresight processes. CIVISTI will include new European actors in the foresight processes in order to expand the experience and capacity of foresight among the member states, institutions and researchers.
