From 2007 to 2011, Sigma Orionis has coordinated the PARADISO FP7 project, exploring the interactions between ICT and societies in the next decades and identifying new research avenues. Since January this year, Sigma Orionis is happy to put its expertise and experience at the service of another FP7 project focusing on forward-looking approaches and foresight studies: FLAGSHIP.
FLAGSHIP (an acronym for “Forward Looking Analysis of Grand Societal Challenges and Innovative Policies”) is supported by European Commission’s DG Research & Innovation under the “Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities” theme. It aims at driving change, supporting the policy shift from adapting to changes through short-term policy responses, towards anticipating, welcoming and managing changes properly.
The project, coordinated by the Italian ISIS, brings together a multidisciplinary team with recognised records of excellence in qualitative, as well as in quantitative forward-looking analysis. FLAGSHIP partners have substantially contributed, individually and collectively, to previous advancements in the field of forward looking analysis and are therefore fully committed to “put FLA knowledge to work”, applying it to the formulation of policies that effectively address main challenges faced by the EU, and the world as a whole.
