Malta and Cyprus are in the process of establishing foresight exercises intended to help in the coordination of national RTD and innovation efforts, support capacity building and integrate these countries into the European Research Area. Experience from the past has underlined the challenge of implementing foresight actions in small economies or in regions with limited human resources and limited support for RTD and innovation activity. foresee will develop methodologies for foresight actions with constraints - limited human resources, limited local infrastructure and shorter time-horizons. The approach is based on a review and analysis of case-studies from smaller countries and regions of Europe . The local foresight teams will receive training and coaching. They will design, implement and evaluate pilot foresight actions based on methodologies developed for their specific objectives and constraints.
