Community building and networking is a central element of the European Foresight Platform. We would like to foster networking, communication, cooperation, support and ideas exchange between individuals and organisations related to (strategic) foresight and other Forward Looking Activities – not only in Europe but in other parts of the globe as well.
Being a member of the European Foresight Platform (EFP) gives you the opportunity to participate within our network and interact with other members and organisations. You can participate in workshops, foresight exercises, let people know about your ideas and get to know ideas from others. As a member you can also sign up for getting the EFP newsletter and get the opportunity to get posts published and participate in the writing of so-called EFP briefs where you can tell about your foresight projects.
The EFP network also provides the opportunity for foresight-related learning and familiarizing yourself with different foresight methods, practices and experiences.
As a member you can:
- Contact other community members and connect to other professionals
- Get listed in the foresight community (with options for customisation)
- Participate in the forum
- Obtain the EFP newsletter (optional)
- Get your posts published (upon approval)
- Get your events known to the community (upon approval)
- Get invited to events, workshops, surveys etc.
- Publish your foresight exercises
- access to a large mapping data base of existing foresight reports
- access to a social network of future studies experts
Membership is free!
If you are professionally involved in foresight/future-related activities (forecasting, foresight, scenario development, simulations, strategic planning, business development, innovation, education, methodologies, consulting, policy making, technology and risk assessment etc.) or are interested in obtaining advise and know how from professionals related to foresight activities, the EFP community may just be the right place for you!
How to join? Currently we are in the process of improving our website to offer even more opportunities and even better networking capabilities. However for the time beeing please register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, with real name, user name, organisation you are related to and a short statement to the reason for you interest.
(To avoid the possibility of being deleted as “spam bot”, we would advise you to use a display name (nickname) and e-mail address that looks rather human than computer-generated – this will also make a more professional impression, in using the community functions, later on.)
