© European Communities, 2011 The problem National research and innovation agencies aim to stimulate research, industry and the public sector to create effective growth and long-term contributions to societys grand challenges. Many approaches involving Future-Oriented Technology Analysis (FTA) have been proposed and tried but most have not fully led to the desired results. Work have been done at Vinnova –the Swedish Governmental Innovation Agency – to find an effective combination of approaches which ensures practical results. It is based on experience from several processes such as the Swedish Technology Foresights, other national strategy processes and European efforts. Basic starting point The starting points are common to many similar approaches: shape and drive structural and systemic transformations rather than to use piecemeal financing of programs and projects work with all actors and stakeholders in industry, R&D, politics and public services to form a long-term agenda create an innovation platform which means to establish common scenarios of the future as a basis for joint activities to create growth and progress An effective combination of approaches Our process distinguishes between the development agenda of the area and the R&D agenda to support such developments. The process must be managed by a process team with significant authority. Essential elements of the process are: A far-reaching scoping paper mapping the issue in all product, actor, research, innovation, opportunity, market, threat, legislation, environmental etc. dimensions An iterative process ignited by an initial challenge to the participants A project team assessing current progress with respect to strategic content and process qualities. The team drives the process through successive challenges for the next iteration based on their 1) assessment of present status and 2) expectations for improvements. Every iteration can change the scope, enlarge the knowledge base (scoping paper), add perspectives (mini- scenarios) on the future, modify strategic choices or change commitments. Linear thinking, i.e. making different contributions only in sequence, must be avoided. Quality dimensions The project team must monitor the process and ensure improvement in the essential quality dimensions: The team issues their challenge to the working group for each iteration and stop the process when qualities meet their satisfaction. Working groups will achieve better results when they know that they will not be released until results are sufficiently good and accompanied by commitments. Discussion A well structured process or quality checklists are not enough. A project team must challenge the working group in iterations to reach sufficient clarity, strategic outlook, bold targets, business development agendas, research agendas, commitment etc. Research and innovation agencies must gear their funding to initiate and cultivate developments through a long-term cooperation with platform participants. Continuous assessment of progress and modification of plans are also essential parts of the process..

Keep the original font colour (100c 80m 0y 0k). Keep the flush-right justification. Set it in Helvetica Rounded Bold Condensed, if you own the typeface. Otherwise, in Arial, Helvetica or Verdana – plain or bold. Keep the original font body size (102 pt or, preferably,120 pt) and the title on a single line whenever possible. Reduce the body size and/or set the title on more than one line only if unavoidable. 2.Poster Subtitle Replace the mock-up text of the poster subtitle (Place Your Poster Subtitle Here) with the text of your own subtitle. Keep the original font colour (black). Keep the flush-right justification. Set it in MetaPlusBook-Roman, if you own the typeface. Otherwise, in Arial, Helvetica or Verdana. Keep the original font body size (72 pt) and the subtitle on a single line whenever possible. Reduce the body size and/or set the subtitle on more than one line only if unavoidable. If your poster does not have a main subtitle, delete the subtitle mock-up text or its text-box altogether. 3.Poster Main Text and Illustrations Replace the mock-up text of the poster with your own text. Keep it within the boundaries of the two main-text boxes provided. Keep the original font colour (black). Should you need a second colour within your text, use the same one of the poster title (100c 80m 0y 0k). Keep the flush-left justification. Set the main text in MetaPlusBook-Roman and the section headings in MetaPlusBold-Roman, if you own the typefaces. Otherwise, the main text in Arial, Helvetica or Verdana, and the section headings in their respective bold weights. Adjust the font body size and leading to the needs of your own text, depending on its overall length, for optimal display and legibility. Should you need a second level of text, set it in a smaller body size than that of your main text (and, in the case of photo captions, in italics, too). Place your illustrations (pictures, graphs, etc.) within the boundaries of the two main-text boxes. Adjust your text-flow as needed. 4.Contact Box Replace the mock-up contents of the contact box with your own data. Keep the contact box in place if possible. Place it elsewhere only if unavoidable for layout reasons, but in that case try, at least, to align it with some main element of the poster. 5.Additional Logos Should you need to display additional logos (e.g., of partner organizations or universities), reduce or enlarge them to a height within those of the JRC logo and the Directorate or Institute logo. Place any additional logos on the bottom of the poster, evenly spaced between the JRC and (if there is one) the Directorate or Institute logo, and vertically centred with them. 2011 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE Making governmental research and innovation agencies build innovation platforms
