A regional foresight process to cope with demographic change: Future Radar 2030

By Kerstin Cuhls, Heinz Kolz and Christoph M. Hadnagy


This article describes a foresight process that addresses social change and its impacts. Future Radar 2030 is a Foresight process, in which tools from foresight are applied in order to work out scenarios and perform a survey. In combination with future workshops, the foresight process and its results have a direct impact on the stakeholders of a German federal state. It therefore has implications for society in general, but also on the innovation system. The article describes the background (demographic change) and the tools from forecasting and foresight that were combined to work out relevant issues. It argues that even a 'small' regional foresight activity has an impact and changes some path of thinking
