Foresight Community News
The European Foresight Platform (EFP) is a network building program supported by the European Commission. It aims at building a global network that brings together different communities and individual professionals to share their knowledge about foresight, forecasting and other methods of future studies. You can find information about current and past foresight projects, conferences, workshops, press articles and other future studies information, e.g. the successor of the well-known ForLearn foresight guide. To learn more about EFP please visit our information section or contact the project coordinator Susanne Giesecke.
