The EC Horizon 2020 program plans to create European scenarios to 2050 on innovation, research, and higher education and produce a set of recommendations for the new leadership of the EC by next March. The EC brought me to Brussels to participate in the group that will create these scenarios and recommendations.
The day before this meeting I gave a two-hour introduction to the on-line Global Futures System www.themp.org to about 15 members of the EC’s Horizon 2020 staff. We also discussed the work we are doing in Egypt and the possibilities of creating a European Collective Intelligence System for the EC. I am told the EC will purchase a subscription to explore possible applications for the EC.
The 2050 Scenarios group will meet four times in Brussels. The second meeting will be October 27th this month, at which special briefings will be given on globalization, demographics, and technology. I was asked to give the on the future of technology. I will also use this trip to jump over to Paris to participate in the European MP Nodes meeting.
All the best,
Jerome C. Glenn, CEO
