Welcome

The EFP Mapping Environment is a multi-purpose platform aimed to monitor, analyse and position (MAP) forward-looking activities (FLA) in Europe and the world. This is a unique space where you will be able locate and hopefully share research and innovation initiatives, which are often associated to one or more of the following approaches: foresight, horizon scanning, forecasting and impact assessment… read more »

2nd EFP Mapping Report: Security Futures


Date: December 2012

Authors: Effie Amanatidou, Rafael PopperThomas Teichler

Number of pages: 45

This report represents deliverable 2.4, of the EFP project. The report discusses the key findings and lessons from the examination of 16 FLA mapped in the area of security research. After exploring the features of the mapped cases across the different mapping variables the report tries to identify similarities and differences and to provide an overall picture of the type of research and outcomes carried out in the area of security. The report offers key results from the mapping security FLA practices, players and outcomes associated with the five phases of the SMART FLA process:

  • Scoping futures
  • Mobilising futures
  • Anticipating futures
  • Recommending futures
  • Transforming futures

 

 

3rd EFP Mapping Report: Health Futures

Authors: Barbara Jones, Effie AmanatidouRafael Popper

Number of pages: 42

This report represents deliverable 2.5, of the EFP project. The report discusses the key findings and lessons from the examination of 20 FLA mapped in the area of health research. After exploring the features of the mapped cases across the different mapping variables the report tries to identify similarities and differences and to provide an overall picture of the type of research and outcomes carried out in the area of health. The report offers key results from the mapping health FLA practices, players and outcomes associated with the five phases of the SMART FLA process:

  • Scoping futures
  • Mobilising futures
