"FUTURREG is designed to have significant long-term impacts for regional development policies, especially by ensuring that policies - and regional development organisations - are informed by high-quality futures tools and participatory processes, including Environmental Scanning, Trend Analysis, Scenarios, Visionary Management and Delphi.
The FUTURREG inter-regional value comes from bringing the knowledge and proven successes of the partners together - to produce a regional futures toolkit that can also be applied in other EU regions. The project will not construct a new set of tools but will bring together the approaches used successfully by the partners within their regions in one toolkit."

It involves the design, implementation and review of social and technological activities and processes to improve the creating, sharing, and applying or using of knowledge. Knowledge management is concerned with innovation and sharing behaviours, managing complexity and ambiguity through knowledge networks and connections, exploring smart processes, and deploying people-centric technologies."
