Global societies are facing increasing various challenges and opportunities due to rapidly shifting global environment. To be prepared and coped with the future well, many nations and institutions are actively doing horizon scanning and foresight activities based on data. This forum will have several presentations about data-driven foresight activities, processes, and use cases as well as development of data-driven horizon scanning technologies and tools and their application to foresight. We hope this forum would be a chance to share experience and know-how among participants.
