This publication presents a synthesis of European and national
forward-looking exercises in the fields of science, technology
and innovation. It answers to the two following questions: "What
recent national forward-looking activities tell us on the future
of science and technology?" and "What EU forward-looking activities
tell us about societal challenges that need to be addressed by
EU research and innovation?".
This publication provides a fresh insight on the main current trends and expected perspectives on the European Research Area and Innovation Union including citizens' visions about science and technology.
