1 BLOSSOM in Hungary FLIS BLOSSOM meeting June 2013, Copenhagen Szandra Szomor Hungarian Ministry of Rural Development, Department of Strategy

2 2 Institutional background  Ministry of Rural Development since 2010 in its present form former Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development + former Ministry of Environment and Water climate change and energy Ministry of National Development  Scientific Committee on Statistics and Futures Research of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences  Corvinus University of Budapest – Department of Futures Studies  National Council for Sustainable Development

3 3 Forward-looking & environmental policy-making in Hungary Many strategies/programmes have no forward-looking component (but might include EU targets) Some have a vision/outlook ( e.g.: National Environmental Programme , National Rural Strategy ) Some are based on forward-looking information, comprehesive futures studies...  Government Decree No. 38/2012 on strategic management „country forecast”: should include trends ans scenarios the national mid-term strategy and long-term strategy concepts in general should include a vision, and targets on the basis of this vision encourages close cooperation with research institutes

4 4 Recent strategies with backing futures studies  Sustainable Energy Strategy of Hungary (2006, by Energy Club)  National Climate Change Strategy (by former Min. of Environment & Water, Hungarian Academy of Sciences)  National Energy Strategy 2030 (by Min. of National Development)  National Renewable Energy Action Plan (by Min. of National Development)  National Sustainable Development Strategy (by National Council for Sustainable Development) + Hungary 2025 as a possibility!

5 5 BLOSSOM Hungary case study we had a case study from 2010 – main focus of 2010 BLOSSOM case study (Technology Foresight Programme ) is out of date already – changes in organisational structure – templates have also changed  Usefulness Knowing about and better undestanding futures research in our area of expertise Sense of ownership Making direct links, personal contacts with futures experts through the interviews More of us do it „together” (Eionet community), sharing experience

6 6  Challenges policy-makers futures experts...no integration of work and efforts EU budgetary cycles etc. Technical Previous case study has to be restructured entirely I’m not a futures expert... „Approach to futures thinking: foresight, visioning, normative, exploratory”; „Axes, factors considered” – also an advantage! Futures programme / study The use of a specific futures study is often difficult to be determined /indirect influence?/

7 7  Suggestions Technical „Futures programme” only as an option; define it Include a space for a list of recent futures studies in the BLOSSOM case study report (Template 4) and/or a table showing the link between strategy documents and futures studies On Eionet Forum all BLOSSOM documents could be in one folder (or at least a collection of links to them) Notification if new/updated content gets uploaded
