Summary of lesson

The Millennium Project (TMP) is an international think-tank, which collects online individual or collective inputs from all over the world to provide an overview of the global strategic landscape.

Results from the model application serve its contributors and users all over the world.

Business (corporate) foresight can be seen as an ability that includes any structural or cultural element that enables the company to detect continuous change early, interpret the consequences for the company and formulate effective responses to ensure the long term survival and success of the company.

The aim of foresight for science is to identify most promising avenues of research and orientate scientific community towards priorities, which may assure sustainable development in the long term.
