RESCHAPE - Reshaping Supply Chains for a positive social impact

As a result of the recent pandemic, global value chains have completely transformed. This has raised concerns over the ensuing social, economic and environmental trends and related impact on the way supply chains are organised. In this context, the EU-funded ReSChape project will analyse social, economic and environmental changes and disruptions, including the COVID-19 pandemic, and evaluate their impact on supply chains.New supply chain models will be proposed, aiming towards a more streamlined supply chain process to assure humans (workers, consumers and in general citizens) to be at the center of the business also thanks to new digital technologies. It will be studied how to assure a positive social impact and innovative policy scenarios will be developed with recommendations to support the future supply chains.

Actualization of Czech republic 2030 strategy

The aim of this study was to serve as one of the inputs to the update and to initiate a discussion on the possibilities of updating the Czech republic 2030 strategy. In order to ensure that this strategic document reflects the dynamic developments on the global and domestic scene, mechanisms for regular reviews and updates of the objectives and measures have been proposed. Given the events of the last 3 years (especially the Covid-19 pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine), it is relevant to review the relevance of the assumptions regarding the long-term development of the Czech Republic, which served as the basis for the original wording of the strategic objectives and targeting of the document.The role of České priority was to provide foresight exercises in order to reach two goals:· Assess the relevance of existing goals: the problems and challenges facing society are changing and so are the definition of objectives for further development. The task of this section is therefore also to determine whether the original ČR 2030 goals are still relevant in the context of change and respond to the major challenges that society is facing and will continue to face in the coming decades.· Identify blind spots: there may be issues or opportunities that the document does not cover - i.e. blind spots. The next task of this part of the update is to identify such gaps to increase the comprehensiveness of the document.The project was implemented in the form of workshops, which were attended by experts and representatives of public institutions and ministries. On the basis of pre-prepared scenarios of development, the participants had to identify the resulting challenges, opportunities and areas that have not yet been covered in the CR 2030. The list of these areas was subsequently consulted with representatives of public institutions. These expert consultations were complemented by input from the general public through a creative competition held in September 2022.

Foresight for Social Innovation

We implemented the ForSI (Foresight for Social Innovation) project with the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, with the Unit of Social Innovation. The aim of this collaboration was to identify so-called social time bombs - in our definition, problems that will be significant in the future or are already known today, but not yet sufficiently addressed by the state administration. The learning process itself was also a framing goal of this collaboration, where the unit team wanted to learn some foresight methods and implement them into certain processes of the department's work. The project involved desk research, two expert workshops, expert interviews, and also working closely with leading experts on social issues to develop a set of social issue cards. The final list of social time bombs was used by the unit to define calls for grant programs for nonprofits seeking to address diverse problems through social innovation. Foresight was thus used in this case to direct public funds more effectively, thereby addressing the problems that need to be focused on with an eye to the future.

The Prospects of Institutionalizing the Values of Openness and Mutual Responsiveness in Science and Democracy

Science can be better fostered in an open, democratic society than in other types of societies. The norm of civic participation in a ‘democracy’ is a lived ideal for citizens, just as the norm of ‘communalism’ is a lived ideal for the scientific community. Both norms presuppose the values of ‘openness’ and 'mutual responsiveness' among scientist and citizens.This highlights ‘openness’ not as a prescriptive norm but as a value of the institution of science. Simultaneously, ‘openness’ is also an institutional value of a democracy. If we primarily understand the norm of communalism as an institutional value of science, then communalism and openness becomey research virtues for the scientific communityrather than prescriptive norms. Similarly, ‘voting’ and participation in social-political decision making is considered a civic virtue in a democracy, even though the institution of democracy does not oblige individuals to vote or to participate. Therefore, we do not need to codifying these norma, which can be seen as functional for the operation of science and a democracy therefore represent institutional values. In this way, we can understand -governance of the institution of science and democracy through the adoption of appropriate research virtues and civic virtues. However, science and democracy are dependent on the extent to which scientist and citizens engage on the basis of these norms. How can we best encourage and incentivise those?

STI for 2050

The project explores potential futures of STI directions in relation to ecosystem performance as interpreted by three perspectives of human-nature relations: protecting and restoring ecosystems, co-shaping socio-ecological systems, and caring within hybrid collectives.  Please find the final report here.  About the project  MISSION. The overarching ambition of this project is to identify and map future scientific and technological developments, which can radically improve ecosystem performance. Policy responses that could enable EU policies for STI to accelerate sustainability transitions worldwide are also explored. The main outcome is to provide reflections on the 2nd strategic plan of Horizon Europe (HE), in its broad direction to support the Sustainable Development Goals.  VISION. S&T&I FOR 2050 is driven by the deliberation for STI efforts to place ecosystem performance on par with human performance. This broadens the focus of STI to encompass multiple conceptualisations of human-nature relations and to contribute to sustainability transitions.  STRATEGY. To identify directions of STI for ecosystem performance, the foresight project maps STI trends, conducts a Delphi study, and exemplifies six case studies along the lines of three perspectives on ecosystem performance: protecting and restoring ecosystems, co-shaping socio-ecological systems, and caring within hybrid collectives.  THE TEAM. The project team is composed by:  Austrian Institute of Technology (lead)  Insight Foresight Institute (IFI) Institutul de Prospectiva  Fraunhofer ISI  ISINNOVA  Visionary Analytics  The project “S&T&I FOR 2050. Science, Technology and Innovation for Ecosystem Performance – Accelerating Sustainability Transitions” is conducted on behalf of the European Commission.

According to the latest reviews and my personal and other experience, the future every twenty or more years, would be different of course, use of the difference of the people that are active and working or living etc. The technology or other parts of planet development, physical or not. What if being active and working on community is not so diverse, what if A.I. and other parts of undisclosed information are easier? What if my generation or the future generations didn 't fail or did not make the defect succes? No what matter, there is a terminal code of human ethics that any entity or other group human parts can not change by its own. Further any other new rules or common digitalisation part that may a european or other union make, if it does not change time at a short time, or if there is a welcome solution for any kind of humanity problems, then the public part is not so certain. All right a union of about less than a billion people or close to that or more, is a good future, but will these people have a good life effectively in a local side, except the global update of it? I am not the best expert for an opinion about it, but i think a saving that induces a better new employers and new profiles options would be defective, plus other special option people about that works more years, that did not have the cases that they were affected etc.. If there is this big union with the budget of these people, that can make changes to the local country’s, what they can not do that to one by one mode? So the critiria and other rights are described by non public community that the effects of the good Community’s Area’s. At last the education part, have not to be a defacto to the next generation, notwithstanding the examination and the winning future of any upcoming group or personalism. I hope at 2040 could be even better for anyone, except the sad parts of unity. Example of better united economy, that people would lead their views according to their knowledge and general skills, indexed by special groups or other foreign or past global forums, or other classified information that we don’t know yet. Reflecting there is no reason to stay to the unit and trying to be active. In that option, i would say yes his stay back to our country’s, to our location? our country safety etc.; stand to my village? Easy and perfectly? with no accommodation’s, because after all its not all about money? there are many other facts that humanity could work and produce? right? P.S.: I think a closer can be Climbed faster than a “non – closer”; or not?

to be honest, there are a lot of issues or topics I can write about about 2040, because what we're talking about is the future, and personally I'm excited and impatient about the future, which makes me wonder more anyway. i will write a few things about the year 2040 that I dream of, first of all, the world should be in a better situation, I mean, as people, we should take more responsibility and make more efforts to protect this legacy left to us, so that we leave a healthy world to future generations... the second issue is that, as is known about the world economy, there are still many more poor countries in the world, and people living in these countries are suffering from hunger and suffering, the people who govern the countries we are in, must urgently find a solution to this problem... there is no need to talk about issues all the time, let's talk about the good things that I want to happen in 2040, for example, new solutions can be found to the health problems that are common today, or we can prefer peace instead of wars. there are many other issues, such as unemployment problems, educational opportunities, energy consumption, rapid population growth, agricultural land problems, etc. we can find new solutions to many problems like these and make the world a better place. I hope 2040 will be great for us...

It is 2040 and Europe stands as a beacon of democracy and human rights in the World. After the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine, a new European leadership based around principles of neo-idealism emerged. Europeans, led by front-line countries like Ukraine, the Baltic states and Poland, decided to build up their capabilities to enhance their security and strategic autonomy. The EU supported Ukraine throughout the war, until Russia lost. Subsequently, the EU supported Ukraine in its rebuilding efforts until eventually welcoming it into the Union and NATO, as one of its strongest militaries and fastest growing economies. In addition to NATO, the Baltics, Ukraine, Poland, Finland and the UK formed another mutual assistance military alliance to protect against potential Russian aggression.
