Thinking ahead sustainability - FLAGSHIP Final Conference

The FLAGSHIP final public conference will be held on December 16, 2015, at CEPS premises (Centre for European Policy Studies), Congresplaats 1, 1000 Brussels, Belgium, with the title of “Thinking ahead sustainably: Policies, Scenarios and Models to address Grand Societal Challenges”.


FLAGSHIP is an FP7 project, funded by the European Commission (DG RESEARCH) under the “Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities” theme, with the aim of developing a “Forward Looking Analysis of Grand Societal Challenges and Innovative Policies”. The FLAGSHIP project thus aims at driving change, supporting the policy shift from adapting to changes through short-term policy responses, towards anticipating, welcoming and managing changes properly.

FLAGSHIP expected impacts:

  • Development of policy applications, through the production of a set of concrete policy recommendations for European institutions, and all stakeholders striving to exploit the potential of transition and change for the future of the European Union;

  • Enhancement of FLA methodological approaches, through the development of an enhanced set of FLA quantitative and qualitative tools, methods and models.

The event welcomes scientists and researchers, representatives of the European Commission, policy makers, civil society and other relevant stakeholders.

During this event, the FLAGSHIP Reference Document will be presented. This document is the main output of the project and it includes a set of EU-relevant policy recommendations on the potential of transition and change for the future of the EU. Information exchanged during the conference will lead to an updated (and a definitive final version) of the FLAGSHIP Reference Document.
