Future Agenda, the world’s largest open foresight initiative, has published the key insights. Future Agenda explores the key issues facing society over the next decade. 120 workshops held in 45 locations around the world have generated these insights. Building on expert perspectives on 24 different subjects, addressing everything from the future of work to the future of health, the big issues and emerging challenges for the next decade are debated and, through the use of workshops and associated events, CEOs and mayors connect with academics and students. Cornelia Daheim is honored to have been part of this and support this great open foresight project. All insights are published now, free for all to use with customizable downloads, on the Future Agenda website.
Cornelia Daheim joined the OEB 2015 as a panel speaker on “Future Work and Future Workers” on December 4th in Berlin. Moderated by Nik Gowing, Cornelia Daheim discussed very intensive with John Higgins (Director General of DIGITALEUROPE) and Ioannis Angelis (Fresenius Kabi) about the new world of work, as a result of rapid technological change. What will it mean for businesses or organisations and their employees? How will they need to adapt to survive? What new skills will be needed? What sort of learning and development activities will there be at work in the future? OEB is the global, cross-sector conference on technology supported learning and training. Read an interview with Ms. Frau Daheim, a summary of the results or watch the complete recording of the panel discussion on Youtube.

Cornelia Daheim and Dr. Sven Hirsch from Future Impacts published a paper about “emerging practices in foresight and their use in STI Policy” in the latest issue of the South-Korean peer-reviewed journal „STI Policy Review“ (Vol. 6, No. 2). The paper outlines four clusters of emerging approaches in foresight and their use in STI Policy: Integrated qualitative and quantitative approaches, IT-based and automated foresight, experiential foresight – these are for example new forms of communication and interaction such as visualization and gaming, or open and crowd-sourced approaches. The paper summarizes a study funded by STEPI; outcomes are based on an expert Delphi survey and interviews. “STI Policy Review” is a multidisciplinary journal that shares high-quality, empirical and practical knowledge on science and technology policy in order to further a robust global community of STI policy researchers, policy makers and practitioners.
