EFP Brief No. 179: Facing the Future: Time for the EU to Meet Global Challenges

The aim of this project is to provide a comprehensive picture of the main trends ahead and possible future disruptive global challenges, and to examine how the EU could position itself to take an active role in shaping a response to them. The work described in the final report contributes with a fresh perspective on the future, linking widely accepted quantified trends towards 2025 and

beyond with the opinions of experts and policy makers on the likely consequences of these trends and wild cards. This work has been undertaken in cooperation with the Bureau of European Policy Advisors of the European Commission.
