Smart, sustainable and inclusive growth: good enough?

The infographic below represents the integration of qualitative and quantitative approaches elaborated by Carlo Sessa from The Institute of Studies for the Integration of Systems. The infographic shows the relations and interconnections between scenarios, storylines, and metamodels and indicators, in order to:

  • Help anticipating major challenges that Europe will have to face in the next 20-30 years in the context of the Innovation Union;
  • Support the impact assessment of medium to long-term demographic, economic, political and technological trends in Europe in a world context.

The infographic is part of FLAGSHIP with the effort in enhancing and improving Forward Looking Analysis methods and tools, including developing and simulating alternative scenarios to address the transition challenges.

The presentations and pictures from the 4th FLAGSHIP workshop are now available here!

The workshop took place at the EU Representation of Lower-Saxony in Brussels on last March 19th and it was extremely successful. Comparing with previous FLAGSHIP workshops, this event welcomed the highest number of participants, with 42 attendees in total. In addition, FLAGSHIP partners brought together their up to date research results with policy making and on-going works to be discussed with all attendees. All feedbacks, opinions and comments are taken into account and integrated into the next policy brief.
