  1. Advise EIGE on different strategic foresight methods and tools and propose ways to embed an strategic foresight approach into the current process of planning EIGE’s activities (single programming documents and EIGE’s current Procedure for planning and reporting), including advice on trends and innovations for meaningful, timely and targeted stakeholder consultations.
  2. Provide a systematic yet concise overview of relevant foresight activities in the EU context and advise EIGE on ways to contribute to EU Commission’s strategic foresight efforts, including with a concise mapping of impactful actors in strategic foresight processes.
