ITB infoservice: New focus issue "Foresight and Roadmapping: Shaping the Future Strategically" now online
The strategic development of future scenarios is one of the key instruments in science to advance research and innovation policy.
Foresight and roadmapping are building blocks for methodically sound looking into the future and strategically planning it. Many countries worldwide use these methods to develop national strategies and also to prepare for international cooperation. In Germany, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) Foresight operates to provide a basis for decision-making for the current research and innovation policy. Currently the next cycle is being prepared which will start in 2019.
