Under the British Council Researcher Links scheme we organised a workshop in Cali, Colombia on 26-28 November 2014. The workshop was coordinated by the University of Manchester and the Universidad del Valle. This was a closed event aimed to bring together up to 40 Early Career Researchers (ECR) to explore possible UK-Colombia research and innovation cooperation opportunities in the following areas:

1. The future of science and innovation policy
2. The future of agriculture and biodiversity
3. The future of climate change research
4. The future of entrepreneurship
5. The future of cities

Foresight is a systematic, participatory, prospective and policy-oriented process which, with the support of environmental/horizon scanning approaches, is aimed to actively engage key stakeholders into a wide range of activities anticipating, recommending and transforming (ART) technological, economic, environmental, political, social and ethical (TEEPSE) futures.

Popper (2011) Scoping Futures (Pre-foresight) Mobilising Futures (Recruitment) Anticipating Futures (Generation) Transforming Futures (Renewal) Recommending Futures (Action) • Key/Emerging/Frontier Issues – Environmental Scanning – Horizon Scanning • ART – Anticipating – Recommending – Transforming • TEEPSE futures – Technological – Economic – Environmental – Political – Social – Ethical
