Prosper Network's participation to the EFP final seminar "Forward Looking Activities Governing Grand Challenges" in Vienna on September 28th

Prosper network was asked by Suzanne Giesecke from Austrian Institute of technology (AIT) and coordinator of the European Foresight Platform (EFP) to build and chair a session for the EFP final seminar in Vienna on September 28th morning. The title of this session is "Forward Looking Activities as a mediator between science, society and policy making”.

Session: "Forward Looking Activities as a mediator between science, society and policy making"

The idea is to discuss how forward looking activities contribute to facilitate not only the adoption of scientific knowledge and innovation by the society  and its involvement  in the policy making process but also a better integration of society wishes in research programs and public policy. An other question to be discussed is how to measure  foresight impacts.
