Global Strategic Foresight Community

The World Economic Forum launches the Global Strategic Foresight Community (GSFC)

As an extension of its own Strategic Foresight practice, the World Economic Forum has established a new community initiative, the Global Strategic Foresight Community (GSFC). A diverse, multistakeholder group, it brings together eminent and forward-looking thought leaders and senior practitioners from leading public, private and civil society organizations. The purpose of the Global Strategic Foresight Community is to provide a peer network to compare and contrast insights as well as to positively shape future-related industry, regional and global agendas. Below you will find information about the members as well as their foresight perspectives on “global shifts”. These shifts concern topics or issues which GSFC members believe should be highlighted now and added to the agendas of the Forum and relevant organizations to inspire constructive action for the future.

Tomorrow’s Healthy Society: Research Priorities for Foods and Diets

Tomorrow’s Healthy Society: Research Priorities for Foods and Diets

The foresight study was carried out by the European Commission's in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre (JRC), and co-financed by DG Research and Innovation. It focuses on the European consumer, considering various factors that influence dietary habits such as lifestyle, working patterns, food supply or economic situation. The aim is to help policymakers formulate and prioritise research needs. The study will support the identification of research priorities for funding under Horizon 2020, and can also be used by relevant stakeholders and interested parties to trigger further discussions on the future food system.
