The Foresight Committee

How the committee works

The Foresight Committee has guided the Institute and steered its development since 2001. The international reputation of its members, and the specific knowledge each of them contributes in his or her own field – human sciences, economics, public health, climate sciences – are the cornerstone of the Institute’s strong scientific credibility.
At its half-yearly meetings, the Foresight Committee interacts with experts on forward-looking topics. These fruitful discussions enable the Institute to define future research and conference themes, and to shed light on its existing work projects. They also provide an opportunity for the Committee members to validate ongoing projects with the team.
