On June 4-5 2018 the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission is organising the next edition of the FTA (Future-oriented Technology Analysis) international conference ‘Future in the Making’ to explore how to bridge the future with the present.

In a time when policymaking is going through a paradigm shift, a stronger emphasis is placed on the ability and flexibility of future-oriented methods to respond to new needs. The conference will foster conversations on how to combine forward-looking approaches with elements of complementary disciplines – i.e. design for policy, behavioural insights and science and technology studies – to improve its strategic relevance for policymaking.

FTA2018 will be an opportunity to debate insights from a selection of recent future-oriented research around a number of policy themes, to exchange on methods, to get hands-on experience of tools and to network with practitioners, academics and policymakers.

FTA2018 call for contributions has been launched. You are invited to submit your contribution before Sunday March 4th, 2018

FTA2018 will take place in Brussels at The Square.

Registration will open early spring.

Please disseminate this notice to your network of contacts that might be interested to join us next June.
