external Event

Date: September 28, 2012
Location / Venue: Vienna, Austria/Vienna French Cultural Institute

 

 

PhD and Master Students present their work on FLA related research
 
The European Foresight Platform (EFP, www.foresight-platform.eu) final conference “FLA for the New Governance of Innovation Systems” aims at establishing a theoretical grounding for forward-looking activities in a cross-disciplinary setting. Therefore qualitative and quantitative methods applied in FLAs will be connected to aspects of governance and other new challenges for Forward Looking Activities (FLAs). Furthermore, the conference will sum up the efforts and results of three years of the European Foresight Platform project and provide an outlook for follow-up actions.
 
The young researcher’s session on forward-looking activities (FLAs) is part of the EFP final conference and aims at bringing together PhD students and master students from the field of future studies, FLAs and foresight. The objective of this session is to discuss insights, approaches, concepts and methods that students use in their research and to further extend the participants’ knowledge on FLAs in a European context and beyond.
 
Research work on all FLA related subjects is welcome. Presentations may be given in traditional (papers or posters) as well as in innovative forms, including creative software like Petcha Kutcha and Prezi. The program will be facilitated and commentated by senior expert researchers.
 
Applications including an abstract of max. 500 words, a CV and a short description of the participants’ research and research interests can be submitted to susanne.giesecke@ait.ac.at (or dana.wasserbacher.fl@ait.ac.at) until July 30, 2012.
