SESTI Final Conference

The SESTI project (Scanning for Emerging Science and Technology Issues) has announced a final conference. Visit the conference website for more details.

The Project

The SESTI project (Scanning for Emerging Science and Technology Issues) is one of six foresight projects funded through a 2006 FP7 call under the Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities theme. During the project a number of techniques were developed to identify weak signals and emerging issues in a systematic, efficient and effective way. The project also included the organisation of a number of workshops designed to link the developed techniques in a meaningful way to existing policy processes. The project was launched in October 2008 and comes to a close in June 2011.

The Conference

The techniques developed in the SESTI project were the subject of an earlier workshop. In this Conference we focus on the three thematic areas which were investigated during the course of the project, and will present the key results from each exercise. The target audience includes EU and national policymakers, foresight experts and other stakeholders.

The three themes addressed by the project are as follows:

  • Cognitive Enhancement
  • Energy
  • Health

Discuss this on the forum.
