The future of the European Research Area – The four VERA scenarios and their use for policy-making
The ”Forward visions of the ERA” (VERA) project set out to produce strategic intelligence for the current and future governance of ERA. It did so employing foresight methodology and, more concretely, producing four scenarios for ERA in 2030. In developing and assessing these scenarios, the project team engaged with a number of stakeholder groups in a structured dialogue.
This policy brief introduces the various outputs of the dialogue process and illustrates how they can be of use for ERA-related policy-making at European Union and EU Member States level beyond the VERA project lifetime.
