Comparison of Irish and Danish Foresight Processes
AbstractIn dynamic business environment, foresight may be considered as a main instrument for strategic science and technology planning for companies, industrial sectors, regions or countries. Today none of the other available future studies can offer better synergies for strategic science and technology priorities setting as foresight can. Irish Council for Science, Technology and Innovation is responsible for the national foresight since 1997. In 1998 the Danish Committee for Technology had initiated the study to explore the possibilities for implementing foresight in the country, and this formed the basis for the first national foresight in 2001. This study is intended to explore the main specifics of foresight in these countries, based on an intensive literature study, several case studies, interviews with experts and Bibliometrical analysis of the European foresight monitoring network and to highlight them as positive examples for other countries.
