Digital Futures is a foresight project launched by the Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CONNECT) to prepare for reflections on ICT policies beyond 2020. The project taps into the collective wisdom and aspirations of stakeholders to co-create long term visions (on a time horizon 2040-50) and fresh ideas for policies that can inspire the future strategic choices of DG CONNECT and the European Commission. The project's work plan is available here.
Digital Futures draws inspiration from the long term advances at the intersection between ICT and society, economy, environment, politics, humanities and other key enabling technologies and sciences.
The project is supported by Futurium, an online platform combining the informal character of social networks with the methodological approach of foresights to engage stakeholders in the co-creation of the futures that they want.
