Dr. Totti Könnölä of Impetu Solutions was invited by the JRC-IPTS of the European Commission as a moderator for the workshop on Dec 16 and 17, 2010 in Seville on JRC Enlargement and Integration Activities Training: Foresight as an Instrument for Policy and Decision Making. The purpose of this training was to better understand how forward-looking mechanisms can be embedded in policy design thus supporting the participant countries with a valuable tool in their EU accession process. The focus of the training was therefore on Foresight, especially escenario development, and its manifold impacts on policy and decision making, and how to design a project to attain specific impact and outcomes.

The workshop focused on the scenario development for EU-RUS science, technology and innovation co-opperation as it was organsed in conjunction with the ERA.Net RUS project.
