Impetu is represented by Dr. Totti Könnölä in the Scientific Committee of The 4th edition of the International Seville Conference on Future-Oriented Technology Analysis (FTA) that focuses on the need and potential of FTA to address disruptive transformations in response to grand societal challenges. FTA offers policy and decision makers the potential to look across such transformations, enabling governments and other organisations to become more adaptive and capable of enacting systemic change.
Accordingly, the 2011 FTA Conference addresses the following specific themes:
- Orienting innovation systems towards global challenges and the roles that FTA can play
- Building FTA capacities for systemic and structural transformations
- Premises and practices in combining quantitative and qualitative FTA methods
Impetu participates also in the design of a pre-conference online survey that will be launched among experienced FTA practitioners, policy makers and other stakeholders to share ideas and explore future emerging issues. Results will be discussed during the conference.
