3 3 ESF mission The European Science Foundation provides a common platform for its Member Organisations (MOs) in order to: Advance European research Explore new directions for research at the European level (from Strategic Plan ) Through its activities the ESF serves the needs of the European research community in a global context. Brussels, 9 December 2010

9 9 Forward Looks Medium - long term scientific perspectives Multidisciplinary topics viewed from a European level Bring together scientists and policy makers from ESF Member Organisations Wide consultation Result in major reports and action plans Brussels, 9 December 2010

10 10 MO Forum on Scientific Foresight for Joint Strategy Development Aim Promotion of Joint Strategy Development in Scientific Foresight in Europe and to develop a European voice for science. Objectives 1.Identify the capacities and best practices for foresight 2.Map national foresight exercises and to propose harmonisation per user communities 3.Identify the needs and gaps of MOs regarding foresight to define how to address those needs at a European level by existing or new capacities 4.Coordinate and develop appropriate joint foresight processes 5.Organise impact assessment in order to identify ways to enhance the implementation of results (Perception Audit and Stakeholder Mapping in progress) 6.Organise highest quality engagement of top level scientists and science foresight experts 7. And also align Governments and Scientific Communities demands Actions 1. Capacities and needs 2. Tools, methodologies and results 3. Positioning Brussels, 9 December 2010

11 Overall Approach of the ESF Forward Look Procedures Outline This Forward Look Scheme procedures outline is: Based on input from an internal ESF working group and external experts (Manchester University, CNAM, Fraunhofer Institute, NAS,US) Coordinated by the Corporate Science Strategy Development Unit which: Made some benchmarking in Europe and US Organised methodological training Drafted the procedures The FL process as described is a practical guide for ESF Head of Scientific Unit to manage a FL activity. 11

12 1. Topic identification SUCCESS FACTORS: Top-down commitment (support from stakeholders and alignment of initiative with political agendas) Ensure topic relevance in terms of visions on science perspectives and novelty Bottom-up commitment Brussels, 9 December 2010

13 2. Scoping & Design of Forward Look proposal SUCCESS FACTORS: Sound intelligence mapping: objectives, state of the art, thematic focus, time horizon, stakeholders identification Detailed work plan: methodology, timelines, participants, financial needs Use of external consultants for specific methodological support Brussels, 9 December 2010

14 3. Conduct a Forward Look Activity & Produce a FL Report SUCCESS FACTORS: Efficient project management Fluid information flow between working groups and Scientific and Management Committees Participants motivation Use of external foresight consultants in line with topic domain Brussels, 9 December 2010

15 4. Dissemination & Implementation SUCCESS FACTORS: Commitment of the Management Committee Support from ESF MOs and other stakeholders Adequate stakeholders mapping for increased impact Brussels, 9 December 2010
