The SCAR-Working Group was mandated by the 11th SCAR Plenary in December 2009 to start preparing a Third Foresight Exercise (FEG3) based on a specific terms of reference for a new expert group which was appointed in 2010.
The European Commission appointed 8 experts for 10 months.

In addition a workshop with stakeholder representatives from relevant KBBE-ERA-Nets, ETP, SCAR-CWGs and other FP7 projects with their own foresight activities was organized in October 2010, to further enrich and consolidate the preliminary conclusions of the expert group before being presented to, and discussed at, the SCAR-Plenary in December 2010.

In order to disseminate the findings and reflect upon the long-term research needs from the Third Foresight Exercise, a stakeholder conference was organised in Budapest on 4-5 May 2011.
