FTA’2018 – Future-oriented technology analysis 2018 – “Future in the making” is the European’s Commission flagship conference, which will be held in Brussels on 4th and 5th of June, 2018 (https://ec.europa.eu/jrc/en/fta2018/background). The conference is addressing future-oriented technology analysis (FTA), i.e. (strategic) foresight, forecasting, technology assessment and related areas. The FTA2018 conference also deals with areas complementing policy support, especially those that introduce innovation in the process of policy development and implementation: design for policy, behavioral insights, science and technology studies, and complexity approaches. The MOVING strategy building background will be presented there by prof. A. Skulimowski (PBF) in the talk entitled “Strategy building for a knowledge repository with a novel expert information fusion tool” in session C2 “Horizon Scanning & Beyond” (https://ec.europa.eu/jrc/en/fta2018/programme) at 3:15 PM on June 5. The presentation will be focused on the project’s innovative approach to the MOVING Platform’s visionary planning, the application of novel online tools such as expert Delphi survey support system, anticipatory networks, and technological roadmapping. They have been deployed as tools within exploitation, community building and user group development of the MOVING project. The talk includes also a description of a novel approach to ensuring the sustainability of the MOVING digital knowledge platform. It will provide an insight to the core methodology of multicriteria exploitation and social impact assessment developed within the project. The ultimate goal of strategic planning is to select a development strategy ensuring the viability and sustainable exploitation of the MOVING Platform during the project durability period and beyond.
The conference will bring together practitioners, academics, and policymakers who are interested in finding more effective ways to reach long-term policy goals.
