Report published by the European Commission on 9 September 2020, comprising its first-ever Strategic Foresight Report.
The report aims to identify emerging challenges and opportunities to better inform the European Union's strategic choices. It is aimed at supporting the Commission in designing future-proof policies and legislation that serves both the existing needs and longer-term aspirations of EU citizens. The 2020 report presents the rationale for using foresight in EU policy-making, and introduces a comprehensive concept of EU resilience.
In light of the Recovery Plan for Europe in the context of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the report considers EU resilience in four dimensions: social and economic, geopolitical, green and digital. For each dimension, the report identifies the capacities, vulnerabilities and opportunities revealed by the crisis, which need to be addressed in the medium- to long-term.
