EULAKS FLACSO, México 2008 Core elements of Foresight in Europe and Latin America Rafael Popper – firstname.lastname@example.org PREST - Manchester Institute of innovation Research, University of Manchester About the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research (PREST) Our Research is broadly grouped into five key themes that reflect both strengths of the Institute and areas of potential growth: • • • • • Technology strategy and innovation management, covering a wide range of topics relating to R&D, innovation strategy, internationalisation and tacit knowledge. There is particular interest in themes such as innovation in defence and security and in medical innovation Services and organisational innovation reflecting Manchester's outstanding track record of research in this field. This covers a range of topics including measurement, management and outsourcing Science, innovation policy and strategic intelligence draws on the extensive and long-standing reputation of Manchester in this field and developments in key areas such as foresight and evaluation of technology programmes Innovation and sustainability is a rapidly growing area of activity which covers environmental management, sustainable consumption and recycling. There is close collaboration with colleagues at the Tyndall Centre in Manchester Innovation, innovation systems and economic development covering familiar issues such as innovation and national and regional development as well as important emerging themes such as innovation as a sustainable route out of poverty in developing economies. Manchester has a particularly outstanding record in the understanding of the dynamics of innovation through evolutionary approaches. Foresight has emerged as a key instrument for the development and implementation of research and innovation policy. The main focus of activity has been at national level as governments have sought to: • set priorities; • build networks between science and industry; • change the administrative culture & research systems and; • encompass structured debates with wider participation leading to the creation of common visions. http://www.e-elgar.co.uk/ Bookentry_Main.lasso? id=3977 What is foresight? • Broadly speaking… • Foresight is not about: – forecasting by experts Pro. • Foresight is more about: – trandisciplinarity – long term thinking F – engagement with decision-makers Pol. Par. – drawing upon wide networks of expertise – creating new action networks – extending the breadth and depth of the knowledge base for decisionmaking – … R.

Manchester Institute of Innovation Research Rationale 1: Directing or prioritising investment in STI (Setting general research directions by identifying previously unknown opportunities) • Informing funding and investment priorities, including direct prioritisation exercises; • Eliciting the research and innovation agenda within a previously defined field; • Reorienting the science and innovation system to match national needs, particularly in the case of transition economies; • Helping to benchmark the national science and innovation system in terms of areas of strength and weakness, and to identify competitive threats and collaborative opportunities; • Raising the profile of science and innovation in government as means of attracting investment. Manchester Institute of Innovation Research Rationale 2: Building new networks and linkages around a common vision • Building networks and strengthening communities around shared problems (especially where work on these problems has been compartmentalised and is lacking a common language); • Building trust between participants unused to working together; • Aiding collaboration across administrative and epistemic boundaries; • Highlighting interdisciplinary opportunities. Manchester Institute of Innovation Research Rationale 3: Extending the breadth of knowledge and visions in relation to the future • Increasing understanding and changing mindsets, especially about future opportunities and challenges; • Providing anticipatory intelligence to system actors as to the main directions, agents, and rapidity of change; • Building visions of the future that can help actors recognise more or less desirable paths of development and the choices that help determine these. Manchester Institute of Innovation Research Rationale 4: Bringing new actors into the strategic debate • Increasing the number and involvement of system actors in decision-making, both to access a wider pool of knowledge and to achieve more democratic legitimacy in the policy process; • Extending the range of types of actor participating in decision-making relating to science, technology and innovation issues. Manchester Institute of Innovation Research Rationale 5: Improving policy-making and strategy formation in areas where science and innovation play a significant role • Informing policy and public debates in these areas; • Improve policy implementation by enabling informed “buy-in” to decision-making processes (for example, so that participants in foresight activities are able to use the understanding acquired here to argue the case for change, and to bring it to bear in more specialised areas than the Programme as a whole has been able to).

Popper (2008) Step 2: mobilising and engaging key stakeholders Step 1: scanning and understanding major S&T developments, trends and issues Meta principles of foresight 1. Contextualised Foresight needs to be rooted in the context within which it is to be implemented be it national, regional, local, corporate, organisational; 2. Credible The robustness of the evidence and the reputation of those presenting and validating it should be such that results are treated as credible; 3. Diversed Foresight must keep an ear open to unpopular views and not rush to a consensus; relevant (and seemingly less relevant) stakeholders should be engaged wherever possible, either in the exercise itself or in pre- and postforesight activities; 4. Systematic A foresight exercise should develop and follow a systematic approach which can easily be replicated. Methods should as far as possible allow comparisons / benchmarking and yield reproducible results; 5. Far-sighted There is little point to foresight which does not include a creative element that is explicitly future-oriented and moves beyond mere zeitgeist; Source: Georghiou, Cassingena, Keenan, Miles and Popper (2008) The Handbook of Technology Foresight Meta principles of foresight 6. Transparent The objectives of an exercise should be clear to all; the design of the process, the sources of information and the means used to analyse data should all be available to those expected to participate and make use of the results; 7. Embedded Foresight’s impact endures where a culture for foresight is able to spread; 8. Engaged The commitment of those capable of acting upon the results should be secured in advance; 9. Efficient In its use of public (or private funds) foresight should be carried out with due economy and efficiency but be adequately resourced to be effective; 10. Adaptive Foresight should be adaptive, drawing upon lessons from previous and current activity to meet evolving demands.
