Event FTA2018: Future in the making, Brussels, 4 & 5 June 2018

The Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission is launching a call for contributions for the 6th edition of the FTA - Future oriented- technology analysis- conference 2018. Focused on the theme 'Future in the making', it will be held on 4 and 5 June 2018 in Brussels.

 In a time when policymaking is going through a paradigm shift, a stronger emphasis is placed on the ability and flexibility of future-oriented methods to respond to new needs. The conference will foster conversations on how to combine forward-looking approaches with elements of complementary fields of policy support, especially those bringing innovation to how policymaking is conceived and implemented – such as design for policy, behavioural insights, science and technology studies and complexity approaches - to improve its strategic relevance for policymaking.

 

Contributions and discussions will be framed around a set of horizontal themes: People & Power, Policymaking & Practice and Perceptions & Potentials. Around these themes we would like to invite contributions that bring:

  • Challenging insights from recent (policy-oriented) foresight and future-oriented processes (STRAND 1)
  • Advances in theory and methodology supporting policymaking (STRAND 2)

•              Hands-on experience of methods and tools (STRAND 3)
