“We are publishing these data because we think that this set of predictions by 727 experts in relation to 147 statements about the future can be very useful to all those interested in making EU research and innovation policy count. They provide the Commission services evidence that helps taking European research and innovation policy forward. From the scenarios and the results of the Delphi survey, the consortium will derive further analysis and policy recommendations to support the preparation of the research and innovation framework programme post 2020. These policy recommendations are expected to be published in early 2018.
We make the data from the Delphi survey available to all in the spirit of openness championed by Commissioner Moedas.”
