Designing the future in Europe

October 6, 2005

Brussels, 05 Oct 2005

The eighth futurological colloquium, 'Designing the future in Europe '05', organised jointly with the second Prague workshop on futures studies methodology, will be held in Prague, the Czech Republic, from 20 to 22 October.

The event is organised by CESES (Centre for social and economic strategies), the Czech coordinator of the Network of Excellence CINEFOGO (Civil society and new forms of governance in Europe - The making of European identity). It is intended to gather specialists' thoughts on various aspects of the future with those of colleagues with methodological bias in order to use their cognitive approaches and styles in the most productive way.

The goal of the event is a methodological experiment stemming from a pool of heuristic methods to produce the best of our knowledge of Europe in order to better understand the future challenges for the enlarged European Union - and to build effective links between foresighting and political practice.
