National ICT RTD Foresight Open Consultation еvent in Greece

Potential images of the future in e-health, digital content and e-government for Greece and the region of South-East Europe were discussed during the Greek Open Consultation (OC) event organised in Thessaloniki by the University of Patras, the University of Macedonia and the Industrial Systems Institute, on December 14th, 2012.

More than 50 representatives from the Academic sector, Industry, Regional authorities and other policy making organisations and NGOs actively participated in the three thematic parallel sessions. The sessions were facilitated by experts in the relevant ICT fields with expertise in foresight exercises. During those sessions the participants offered valuable input towards a) the evaluation of the work that has been undertaken in the FORSEE project regarding the description of the current situation in e-health, digital content and e-government, b) the evaluation of the foresight methodology that will be applied throughout the project and c) future oriented questions that will in turn support the project to shape the possible images of the futures in the related ICT fields on a South-East European level.
