FEN-meeting in Florence

The meeting will take place in Florence, November 8th, from 10 am to 5 pm. As always, we aim to create an opportunity for foresight practitioners from Europe to network with each other, learn from each other, and develop shared activities. We feel we have put together a great programme, for example including inputs from the EU-JRC foresight team (Fabiana Scapolo / Eckhard Störmer) and Dr. Emanuele Fabbri, Tuscany Region. I would already like to thank them as well as all others who are contributing, and especially our hosts ValueDo for providing such a great location.

More info on the agenda and practical matters (hotel options, locations etc.) are attached, as well as our general info on FEN. There will also be a dinner on that day and the evening before.

In order to proceed with the preparation, we need feedback from you (it will only take 2mins):
