Some days ago the European Parliamentary Research Service published a report about emerging technologies likely to change society. Among the trends chosen are autonomous vehicles as well as virtual currencies and drones. The inclusion of MOOCs clearly shows the importance of this educational format for the EU.
This study was undertaken to develop a methodology for carrying out foresight studies within the European Parliament.
Ten different scientific and technological trends are investigated which reflect the interests of citizens, policy-makers and legislators drawn from across the European Union.
