Methods for foresight project/exercise

Let' s imagine what methods we need in order to execute a foresight project or exercise -
and firstly
  • to think about, debate, find, identify, invent, choose a theme/topic for the foresight (a client makes decision)

A foresight could be in / for a ministry, S&T council, government institution, department, sector of industry, business company, R&D, a field of knowledge, policies, learning and education objectives, etc.

A foresight project or exercise can be 'open foresight', including different kinds of stakeholders, consumers, customers, public and non-governmental sector, etc., looking for innovative solutions and addressing (possible, preferable) futures in inter- and transdisciplinary research and activities, knowledge work.
