European Commission > Research > Agriculture > SCAR > SCAR mandate
Following the second plenary meeting, the SCAR decided to launch a long-term foresight process aimed at assessing the outlook of European agriculture by 2015-2020.
The SCAR-WG is currently preparing the ground for a research agenda on foresight initiatives undertaken by SCAR, based on existing foresight studies/activities and possible mapping/networking of foresight activities at national, EU and international level.
An important step towards this objective might be a foresight conference on the future of European agriculture to be held in the first half of 2007 during the German presidency.
