We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Exploring new challenges of policymaking and future-oriented frames and methods to respond to them is the aim of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) FTA2018 conference - Future in the making.
If you are a foresighter, a policymaker, a practitioner, a designer, an academic or a future-thinker we invite you to participate and explore the future at the FTA2018.
Today's policymaking environment is complex. People seem to lose trust in policymakers and democracy.
This is already leading to profound transformation. The number and variety of actors increased. There are new channels of involvement and influence.
Policymakers are confronted with an accelerating speed of change. The emergence of novelty requires not only rapid reaction but also creation of new meaning and sense.
The conference is to contribute to transformation and innovation in policymaking by:
Presentations and discussions will be framed around a set of horizontal themes
Contributions will be organised in three strands
We invite you to visit the programme webpage regularly as the agenda will be continuously updated.
