More Use of the Future in Norwegian Innovation Policy Learning
The activities presented in our UNESCO Futures Literacy Summit Booth are not the only ones applying the future to research and innovation policy learning.
Senior Adviser Erik Øverland has, for instance, used foresight actively in the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research.
The Ministry of Local Government and Administration presented several scenarios associated with their recent white paper on innovation in the public sector.
The Research Council of Norway and Innovation Norway have also made active use of foresight, including futures literacy laboratories.
Moreover, professor Andrew Morrison skillfully led the international Anticipation 2019 conference the at Oslo School of Architecture and Design in Norway, which also included sessions of policy learning and development.
