The Foresight Europe Network (FEN) is a network of institutions and individuals. We are currently approx. 150 members from a variety of countries who aim to advance foresight in Europe. We try to do so by enabling connections between practitioners in our two meetings per year, by furthering and creating projects between our members, with activities showcasing foresight at conferences and events, or via publications. Previous FEN meeting took place at the University of Pisa, Italy in conjunction with beFORE project final conference.

At the 2020 Futures Conference, FEN members will host a meeting and interactive sessions enabling the exchange of knowledge on the methods & tools applied when working with futures topics through learning-by-doing experience.
