Future in the Making takes place to explore how to bridge the future with the present through the opportunity to debate insights, from a selection of future-oriented research.
From the 4th to 5th June 2018, the next edition of the FTA International Conference, Future in the Making will take place to explore how to bridge the future with the present. The conference will take place in Brussels at The Square, and is organized by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission.
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, behavioral 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 several policy themes, to exchange on methods, to get hands-on experience of tools and to network with practitioners, academics and policymakers.
A call for contribution will be launched early 2018 and registration will open early spring.
