FORERA - European foresight
FORERA (an acronym of “Foresight for the European Research Area”) is a European research unit that provides forward looking intelligence to support decision making and improves the use of foresight as an instrument for policy making on European research.

The backbone of the FORERA activities is that future-oriented thinking is a necessary policy response component to the environment of accelerated socio-economic and technological changes.

Therefore, future-oriented technology analyses and studies (including strategic Foresight, forecasting and technology assessment) are embedded in the activities undertaken by the FORERA Action to deepen the understanding of changing challenges and opportunities.

The publications section contains a number of articles and papers on ambient intelligence and converging technologies. They also seem to be preparing a European foresight academy.
