NOTES

1. Poster Title

• Replace the mock-up text of the poster title (”Joint Research Centre”) with the text of your own title.

• Keep the original font colour (100c 80m 0y 0k).

• Keep the flush-right justification.

• Set it in Helvetica Rounded Bold Condensed, if you own the typeface. Otherwise, in Arial, Helvetica or Verdana – plain or bold.

• Keep the original font body size (102 pt or, preferably,120 pt) and the title on a single line whenever possible. Reduce the body size and/or set the title on more than one line only if unavoidable.

2. Poster Subtitle

• Replace the mock-up text of the poster subtitle (”Place Your Poster Subtitle Here”) with the text of your own subtitle.

• Keep the original font colour (black).

• Keep the flush-right justification.

• Set it in MetaPlusBook-Roman, if you own the typeface. Otherwise, in Arial, Helvetica or Verdana.

• Keep the original font body size (72 pt) and the subtitle on a single line whenever possible. Reduce the body size and/or set the subtitle on more than one line only if unavoidable.

• If your poster does not have a main subtitle, delete the subtitle mock-up text or its text-box altogether.

3. Poster Main Text and Illustrations

• Replace the mock-up text of the poster with your own text. Keep it within the boundaries of the two main-text boxes provided.

• Keep the original font colour (black).

• Should you need a second colour within your text, use the same one of the poster title (100c 80m 0y 0k).

• Keep the flush-left justification.

• Set the main text in MetaPlusBook-Roman and the section headings in MetaPlusBold-Roman, if you own the typefaces. Otherwise, the main text in Arial, Helvetica or Verdana, and the section headings in their respective bold weights.

• Adjust the font body size and leading to the needs of your own text, depending on its overall length, for optimal display and legibility.

• Should you need a second level of text, set it in a smaller body size than that of your main text (and, in the case of photo captions, in italics, too).

• Place your illustrations (pictures, graphs, etc.) within the boundaries of the two main-text boxes. Adjust your text-flow as needed.

4. Contact Box

• Replace the mock-up contents of the contact box with your own data.

• Keep the contact box in place if possible. Place it elsewhere only if unavoidable for layout reasons, but in that case try, at least, to align it with some main element of the poster.

5. Additional Logos

• Should you need to display additional logos (e.g., of partner organizations or universities), reduce or enlarge them to a height within those of the JRC logo and the Directorate or Institute logo.

• Place any additional logos on the bottom of the poster, evenly spaced between the JRC and (if there is one) the Directorate or Institute logo, and vertically centred with them.

Foresight for setting prioritydevelopment directions

in strategic nationwide research institutes

Introduction

The analysis of foresight initiatives carried out in Europe indicates that the vast majority of projects regard national, regional or sectoral foresight. In scientific literature particular emphasis is placed on the dissemination of theoretical and practical aspects of these projects; whereas, information on the methodology to implement foresight at the institutional level (corporate foresight) is limited.

Research method and findings

In order to generate insights into the status quo of the foresight implementation in companies and nationwide research institutes, a multiple case study research method was selected.

    • Source: own figure
  • There are two general approaches in implementing foresight activities in strategic, nationwide research institutes. Firstly, a specialised foresight unit integrated in other institute’s department indicates most promising research areas and recommends topics for specific R&D projects. These are determined by the results of supra-national, national or sub-national foresight initiatives coordinated by the institute. Secondly, foresight activities are undertaken independently by individual researchers or project teams while planning (designing) specific research and development projects.
  • By maintaining strong links with industry the institutes are able to reach a balance between technology push and demand-pull in executed foresight activities. Furthermore, the established industrial connections determine the main objective of foresight process: identification of niche technologies or products. The analysis indicates that technology roadmapping and scenario building are most frequently used to reach this objective. Yet, the institutes themselves are currently developing methodologies which will help them better combine their foresight activities with general institute innovation process (e.g. through adapting foresight methods to the needs of individual researchers).

  • With regard to strategic, nationwide R&D institutes, it should be stressed that such institutions are often partners in national, regional or sectoral foresight projects but seldom implement corporate foresight process in order to anticipate their own development. Taking into account the position of such institutes in national and European innovation systems, it is necessary to develop a model that, after implementing it in strategic research institutes, would allow, on the one hand, to set and monitor institute priority directions of development; and, on the other hand, to identify national or European research priorities. The model will then be verified in the Institute for Sustainable TechnologiesNRI (Poland).
  • Research questions
  • How to combine institutes’ foresight process with ongoing national and international foresight projects?
  • How can foresight activities support institutes’ launching of strategic research themes?
  • How to integrate foresight as an essential element in institutes’ research activities?
