The method

The CIVISTI project will:

a) consult national citizen panels through an informed deliberation process, focussing on long term visions, needs and concerns of the citizens;
b) develop criteria for transformation of the visions into relevant areas for
future science, technology and innovation activities;
c)  use of the criteria, through stakeholder and expert participation processes,
analyse the citizen visions and transform them into possible priorities for research programmes;
d) validate and supplement the priorities through a second round of citizen consultation.

The project will develop a novel citizen participation process with the aim of making cost-effective citizen
participation possible in trans-national foresight processes.
CIVISTI will include new European actors in the foresight processes in order to expand the experience
and capacity of foresight among the member states, institutions and researchers.
