The Art of Foresight and Sustainable Futures

The world is experiencing great uncertainties about the unfolding economic crisis and its aftershocks. Many countries, industries and public services face challenging futures where the quest for opportunities is increasingly competitive. Economic discontent has combined with existing political stresses to catch many institutions – and countries - wrong-footed. Meanwhile, globalisation, migration, environmental, political and technological trends are reshaping the rules of the game. This calls for critical reflections on existing assumptions, plans and strategies for the long-term future. Our foresight course explores ways in which decision-makers can address uncertainties. How to produce sound and forward looking results that are useful for decision-makers?

ERA-LEARN 2020 Workshop on evaluation and impact assessment of P2Ps

Assessing the impacts of public-to-public networks in research and innovation (such as JPIs, ERA-NETs, Art. 185s) is vital for building a convincing case and establishing the added value of these networks compared with national or other European initiatives. Significant work has been done in this area in recent years, especially for ERA-NETs. Notwithstanding the value of this work, examining and documenting the socio-economic impact accruing from such networks is not an easy task. The assessment of socio-economic impacts emerging from research faces a number of challenges, including difficulties in identifying and addressing all (potential) users and beneficiaries, in applying counter-factual approaches and identifying causality, the inherent complexity due to the multiplicity of impacts and their variable timeframes, not to mention the potential of unintended impacts. At the same time, there are growing concerns that existing indicators for impact measurement are not appropriate for assessing the socio-economic impacts emerging from public-to-public networks, while the definition of the socio-economic value of research and innovation itself is not straightforward.
