Short description:

A foresight exercise involves future-oriented awareness and planning in order to respond
quickly and effectively to future threats and opportunities. Basically, it is a qualitative, multiple
holistic case study based on foundational investigation and opinion-based data collection and
practice. The two major elements of a foresight exercise are the location and the domain, and
in this particular case the foresight was carried out on the bioeconomy perspectives in the
BIOEAST macro-region, in line with the implementation of the vision up to 2030, and aiming
to support the Member States in developing their sustainable bioeconomies to benefit not
only from their similarities, but also their differences, at all levels. At the same time, the
broader EU and global context needs to be taken into consideration, investigating the special
characteristics of the macro-regional deployment of the bioeconomy, specific needs, and
potential through possible scenarios.
