Foresight impact audit: online survey


The LSE Public Policy Group is undertaking an impact audit of the UK Foresight Programme based in the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills. The research will examine the impact that Foresight reports have within government and policymaking communities as well as their contribution to academic and third sector research.

We have set up a website for this project: www.ppgsurvey.org/foresight . It holds more details on the research and also hosts two surveys: one for those who are familiar with Foresight and its research; the other for those who work in areas relevant to Foresight reports but are not familiar with them directly.
We are trying to collect as wide a range of views as possible, not only on the Foresight programme and its research, but also on issues relating to the value and impact of future-focused research.
Thank you very much in advance for your help.

Best wishes, Jane Tinkler
