Join the Foresight Community

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.

Is your Foresight exercise not represented as a Brief on the EFP website yet?
Use the occasion and disseminate your forward looking project to a widespread audience of practitioners, academics and other interested readers from the European Commission, the European Parliament, national ministries, universities and other research organisations, NGOs and international audiences such as the UNIDO. Share your unique experiences with the European Foresight Community by filling out the template and sending us the first version of your Brief.

Please consider to apply for registration to get full access. The following public list provides a small selection of current news about the foresight community in Europe.
