© European Communities, 2011 Background The European Science Foundation (ESF) was established in 1974 to provide a common platform for its Member Organisations to advance European research collaboration and explore new directions for research. In July 2009 the EUROHORCs and ESF have issued their Vision on a Globally Competitive ERA and their Road Map for Actions stressing the need for ESF to develop scientific foresight for its Member Organisations and using its results as a basis for joint strategy development. In September 2010, ESF launched a Member Organisation Forum on Scientific Foresight aimed at developing an effective European research policy, capitalising on cultural, geographic and scientific diversity and promoting transnational funding, quality benchmarking and shared scientific priorities for strategic research and researcher-driven programmes. Forward Look - a flagship activity of ESF strategy ESF Forward Looks enable Europes scientific community, in interaction with policy makers, to develop medium to long-term views and analyses of future research developments with the aim of defining research agendas at national and European levels. Forward Looks are scientific foresight activities driven by ESFs Member Organisations and, by extension, the European research community. Quality assurance mechanisms, based on peer review and consensus building, are applied at every stage of the development and delivery of a Forward Look to ensure its quality and impact. Views on how to increase impact of ESF Forward Looks 1.Develop ESF Forward Looks into a high-quality foresight instrument across all fields of research. 2.Ensure that ESF Forward Looks have significant impact in addressing Grand Challenges. 3.Ensure that ESF foresight in science on top of a comprehensive analysis of the knowledge generation and dissemination, are integrating research organisational issues and socio-economic context and future impact. 4.Develop high level training.

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 ESF views on how to develop Foresight in Science for Joint Strategy Development ESF views on how Scientific Foresight Activities could contribute to the Joint Programming Cycle At the invitation of the High Level Group charged with identification of the thematic areas for Joint Programming, ESF contributed to the drafting of voluntary guidelines for the framework conditions for foresighting activities and peer review procedures. Example of a Forward Look Activity building on Technological Assessment TECHBREAK Technological Breakthroughs for Scientific Progress Past experience in space research has demonstrated that there is often a conservative approach to technology, resulting in gradual evolution and infrequent breakthroughs. In proposing missions, scientific teams tend to rely on gradual technological innovation, which can force space agencies to deal with obsolete technologies, thus losing competitiveness and leadership. Science and technology breakthroughs in space will be targeted and blocking factors will be identified by this Forward Look which was initiated as a request from the European Space Agency (ESA). More at: www.esf.org/foresight in science Methodological approaches 1. Debate about the choice of science topics that could benefit from foresight as a basis for joint strategy development and joint programming. 2. Define the scope of the desired foresight study and propose the best approach to reach the objectives. 3.Identify : - resources within Member Organisations to constitute a community of practice between Member Organisations and ESF, - potential partners both at European and International level, and contract for methodological support and/or strategic alliances as needed.
