Instructions for Briefs

Briefs are an increasingly common tool among foresight researchers and practitioners. Briefs consist of short reports, highlighting in an effective manner the main results and implications, as well as design aspects, of a foresight exercise or project. Their aim is to be accessible and relevant to policy makers, practitioners and the scientific community. 

This is why, in order to maximize the impact of interesting worldwide foresight activities, the FTA Conference is publishing valuable contributions, which could not be fit in the presentation sessions, in the form of briefs
