“The challenge is not that we must find ways to “know” the future,

rather we need to find ways to live and act with not knowing the future.”

(R. Miller, 2011)

Case Studies. A case studies database of best business foresight practices from several sectors has been created as part of the 1st work package of the project (“State of the Art”).  Each case study identifies the scope of the foresight practices and the core foresight and innovation/entrepreneurship competences in relation to knowledge, skills and social competences that a future-oriented manager should possess. These cases are distributed according to the size of the business (small/large).

Educational offer. This subsection presents the best education practices (educational offer) available currently at global level, as part of the 1st work package of the project (“State of the Art”). Each education practice/offer identifies the basic facts about the practice (country, field and type of study…), along with the core foresight and innovation/entrepreneurship competences in relation to knowledge, skills and social competences that a future-oriented manager should possess. These best practices are divided according to the type of educational offer: Bachelor, Course, Master, PhD, Postgraduate, Training.
