Raw Materials Foresight Guide – MICA project
- Marco Konrat Martins, Project Manager, La Palma Research Centre
- Balázs Bodó, Senior Advisor, La Palma Research Centre
The purpose of the Raw Materials Foresight Guide is to provide guidelines to conduct Foresight exercises and methodological recommendations for the mineral raw materials policy making, under the context of strategic raw materials intelligence. It seeks to increase efficiency and effectiveness of the EU activities related to raw materials policy planning.
Through an ontology-based online platform, the European Raw Material Intelligence Capacity Platform (EU-RMICP), the MICA project aims at supporting raw materials stakeholders in translating relevant data, information, methods and tools into appropriate knowledge and intelligence for answering their needs. A number of these different potential questions and needs might frequently encompass forward-looking properties and should therefore appraise the utilisation of forward-looking approaches such as foresight. In that sense, it is important to provide basic definitions, set out relevant references and benchmarks and explain methodological approaches to increase the user capacity to benefit from foresight approaches.
