The UK Government’s Foresight Programme helps government to think systematically about the future. Foresight achieves this by bringing an evidence-based approach to thinking about the future. Highlights of our work can be found in the annual reviews.
Foresight projects usually last for 18 months to two years.
Science reviews are produced during the first stage of Foresight projects. The reviews are a statement of the most up to date, relevant science and other evidence gathered to inform the project. The reviews are often published as a set in academic peer-reviewed journals and on the Foresight website.
The final stage includes publication of the project report before being launched to government and a stakeholder engagement plan – an action plan to catalyse the project’s findings within the government and other important groups.
The Foresight Horizon Scanning Centre publishes reports of its work when possible. A list of current publications can also be found here.
