The 4th International Seville Future-Oriented Technology Analysis (FTA) Conference will be held 12 - 13 May 2011, at the JRC Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) in Seville, Spain. The focus of the conference is on the need and potential of FTA to address dynamic and disruptive events in response to grand societal challenges. These events may range from rapid technological changes to shifts in social norms, values and lifestyles. FTA is a potential tool to gain a better understanding of the complex systems that interact in each situation and in defining effective policy responses. Therefore, governments and other organisations can become more adaptive and capable of enacting systemic changes. This bi-annual conference is an opportunity for the scientific and policy-maker community in the FTA area to meet and to mutually deepen their knowledge.

Policy and decision makers have a rising need to look at the future. Future-Oriented Technology Analysis (FTA) provides a common umbrella for the foresight, forecasting and technology assessment research techniques and their respective communities. These closely related communities play an important role in guiding policy and decision making to anticipate and shape future developments. The "Seville FTA Conference" is a unique occasion for them to meet and to mutually enrich their approaches. This bi-annual event has become a reference point for the scientific and practitioner community in the field.

A JRC information exchange event was held in Chisinau, Moldova, on 8 November 2010, followed by a workshop on foresight on 9 November. Both events were organised together with the Academy of Sciences of Moldova that serves as the ministry of science in the country. The objective of the information event was to deliver an insight on the JRC's activities with specific focus on metrology (IRMM) and identify possible areas of collaboration. The foresight workshop reflected the Moldovan request to inform the national experts on foresight methods with a view of initiating such an exercise in the future.
