Group of services that supportssharing of knowledge and information related to trends analyses and horizon scanning.
Tool for trends identification and description (horizon scanning, incl GMTs) will support process of identification of trends relevant for European environment, their continuous management, updating and identification of new trends from the countries and the EEA.
A systematic process of analysis, identification and categorization of strategic information seeking to identify Drivers of Change present in the external environment, with the aim of better understanding it, its interactions, and how it influences the behavior of the actors it comprises, in order to identify critical issues, risks and opportunities, emerging issues or disruptions. The ultimate goal is to improve the ability of any organization to anticipate and prepare for new challenges. This strategic information appears initially in the form of drivers of change, which can be classified into several categories. For the purposes of this definition the following five categories of Drivers of Change shall be considered: Megatrends, Trends, Uncertainties, Wild Cards and Weak Signals.
type of information to fulfil the purpose

(This function is to be developed)
FLIS glossary is a basic service which will support definition of terms to be used by NRC FLIS (and in EIONET) and also enable visibility and comparison with other existing definitions.
The process of working backwards from a possible future to determine what needs to happen to make this future unfold.
Note: We envision sustainable intensification of agriculture feeding the world population in 2050 without jeopardizing natural resources and the environment for coming generations. Backcasting identifies what needs to happen to get there in terms of policies and international agreements, trade, behavioural changes, technologies and practices, capacity development, etc.
See examples of the use of backcasting in Briefs 03, 17 and 19 published in the GFAR series “The futures of Agriculture” at http://www.egfar.org/our-work/shaping-future-together/global-foresight-hub/publications

Live Catalogue of needs and offers for FLI will support sharing of skills, good practices, methodological tips and other activities (like projects development).
Another group of services will be linked to USe of Forward-Looking Information for Policy(USFLIP). They will support activities developed under the project Blossom (Bridging long-term scenario and strategy analysis: organisation and methods) and other approaches and processes when identification of use of FLi in policy cycle is collected, evaluated and reported. It will cover countries studies and collate in European wide crosscutting assessment.
