A strategic foresight initiative for the Western Balkans

COVID-19 has caused major disruptions to the Western Balkan economies and the consequences are evident in all parts of society. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are struggling hard and looking for ways to respond to the still unfolding situation. Foresight can help to cope with such uncertainties and understand the implications for SMEs and policymakers in the long term. On behalf of the European Commission, the International Service Facility is conducting a foresight study in the Western Balkans. The study aims to design regional and national scenarios for 2035 that will be co-created together with stakeholders from the private sector, civil society, academia and government. The scenarios will support policymakers in creating an enabling environment for innovation policies to thrive and decide on priorities for strategic investments.
