Foresight is a systematic attempt to look into the longer-term future. La Palma Research Centre has developed a unique capacity of foresight supporting strategic decision-making in a wide range of technology areas. 

Policy analysis is an additional service that we are offering. Our team can evaluate which policies – national and European – can be favourable or act as a bottleneck for a community or an initiative to achieve their ambitious goals.

By studying alternative futures and policy scenarios we help individuals, decision-makers, communities and business organizations understand how their decisions in the present could affect their initiatives in the future.

Example: CHPM 2030

The CHPM 2030 project used foresight methodologies to determine suitable pathways for further development of the technology. Parallel, foresight was used to study future application targets.
