CreatorJoint Research Centre, Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (JRC-IPTS)
DescriptionEuropean Commission's Joint Research Centre Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (JRC-IPTS) carries out so-called "techno-economic" research and covers the fields of research policy and techno-economic foresight, sustainable development, industrial and clean technologies, energy, transport, agriculture and rural development, and the information society. The work of the European Foresight team of the Knowledge for Growth (KfG) Unit of JRC-IPTS centres on the provision of forward looking intelligence to support decision making and enhancing the use of Foresight as an instrument for policy making in Europe. The European Foresight website provides studies and reports carried out by the Unit as well as a number of weblinks to key foresight sources, e.g. the FOR-LEARN online foresight guide, and the biannual International Seville Conference on Future-Oriented Technology Analysis which gathers representatives of technology foresight, research and businesses from Europe and beyond to discuss themes important for development of science and technology and its embedding into society.
