From Wikipedia: The term 'futurists' most commonly describes authors, consultants, organizational leaders and others who engage in interdisciplinary and systems thinking to advise private and public organizations on such matters as diverse global trends, plausible scenarios, emerging market opportunities, and risk management.
1) Arranging a series of workshops of top Polish scientists in various FutuIcT related domains (social sciences, complexity science, ICT research, political sciences and others).
2) Performing preliminary and reconnaissance studies in our research teams in the directions of possible FuturICT research lines. 3) Lobbing by Polish politicians who can decide on the political evaluation of the final Flagships proposals in 2012.4) Disseminating the FuturIcT ideas at National and International Conferences as well as in popular newspapers by interviews. Our National FuturIcT web site has been already created as www.futurict.pl
