EFP Policy Reflection – Screening Urban Foresight

One of the objectives of the European Foresight Platform is to provide support to European and national level policy makers in dealing with and preparing strategic action on major challenges which Europe is facing. Some of these challenges are related to a worldwide trend towards increasingly urbanized societies. EFP write up a new reflection for policy makers on an interesting foresight initiative about Urban Europe by the Joint Programming Inititiative.

The Joint Programming Initiative – Urban Europe plans foresight activities with a time horizon of 2050+ that aim at developing a long-term Strategic Research Agenda. In the present pre-foresight phase, foresights on urban issues and studies supporting forward-looking activities were reviewed to support the formulation of foresight topics and provide an overview of challenges, trends and drivers addressed in recent foresight activities with a time horizon exceeding 30 years.
