Foresight Approach

What is Foresight ?foresight

Foresight exercises come in all sorts of shape and sizes (forecasting, technology assessment, future studies, regional, nationwide, domain specific etc). Their common aim is to identify long term trends and to guide decision-making, accounting for the views of the different stakeholders by having them actively participate in the exercise.

The process should be an open one where discussion between the participants is encouraged (e.g through panels, workshops or forums) and where the results are fed into public decision-making (e.g which research priorities deserve public funding).

Additional information on Foresight can be found on the Community Research & Development Information Service (Cordis) Webpage.

Why use Foresight ?

The FNR Foresight exercise aims to consolidate the views of the stakeholders of public and private research in Luxembourg to identify research domains and priority axes for the public sector with short-term and/or long-term socio-economic interest for Luxembourg society and shape its future research programmes from these.

This Foresight exercise is seen as a participative process involving different stakeholders from public authorities, industry, research organisations, non-governmental organisations, etc.
