  3. 3. Strategic Foresight project • Objective: to develop a view of future change relevant to Horizon 2020 – Not intended to predict the future – But to stimulate a discussion about the future • Used established methods of Foresight – Derived from the academic field of futures studies • 6 months (May – October 2015) • Built on existing Foresight research projects • Involved a large number of people – 80 subject experts and 40 contributors from the Commission • Addressed the full thematic scope of H2020 from four different perspectives © SAMI Consulting www.samiconsulting.co.uk 3
  4. 4. Phases • Workshop 1: Analysis of trends • Workshop 2: Scenarios • Workshop 3: Implications Outputs 12 Drivers of future change 4 Scenarios of the world in 2030 8 Issues and potential disruptors for H2020 © SAMI Consulting www.samiconsulting.co.uk 4 Summary of project stages

  7. 7. Workshop 2: Scenarios • Why use scenarios? – Scenarios are stories about potential futures – They are not predictions – Useful tool to stimulate discussion, and explore future possibilities • Based around two important uncertainties reflected in several of the drivers of change: – Is society centralised and elitist, or decentralised and participative? – Material growth or the circular economy? • The critical uncertainties were social drivers – Technology drivers were seen as less uncertain, and would appear in all scenarios © SAMI Consulting www.samiconsulting.co.uk 7

  16. 16. Health as a major driver Progress in medical science brings opportunities to revolutionise health care (prevention, diagnosis and treatment). Individuals and populations are becoming more demanding of science and of health economics and policy.
  17. 17. Biotechnology Biotechnology, accelerated by developments such as gene editing, will be transformative. – Lengthen human lifespan and improve health. – Also industrial processes, biofuels, agriculture and animal breeding. It will transform the food chain. – Will affect Europe through European practice, as well as through its adoption in other parts of the world.
