Review: International Roundtable «Bridging the Gap between Technological Complexity and Cognitive Abilities When Dealing with the Future


On 10 November 2023 an international round table discussion was held at the Higher School of Economics on the topic of “Bridging the Gap Between Technological Complexity and Cognitive Ability in Working With the Future”. The event was hosted by the editorial board of the Foresight and STI Governance Journal. The discussion focused on decision-making and strategy optimisation to meet major challenges in an increasingly complex, due to the rapid technological development, context. Indicators which allow to recognise, even at the initial development stages, the characteristics inherent to a system (company, project), including its identity, strengths and weaknesses, contradictions, errors and tips on how to avoid them, etc. were considered, and ways to use them as a basis for more accurately predicting the prospects of success or failure, and the scope for reorganisation. The participants discussed the best tools and practices which contribute to a better, more holistic understanding of complex processes, to manage them more efficiently.

Foresight and meta-competencies in the context of “complexity economics”


“Complexity economics” covers a wide range of issues from managing complex socio-economic systems and innovative projects to cognitive aspects which determine economic agents’ behaviour. The topic of meta-competences – those that enable one to holistically cover a multidimensional context, and develop realistic strategies to match various future scenarios – is of particular relevance here.
These and similar aspects were addressed by the participants of the round table discussion “Blending Qualitative and Quantitative Foresight Methods in Complexity Economics”. The event was hosted by the editorial board of Foresight and STI Governance journal as part of the international symposium “Foresight and Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy” in the scope of  the XXIV Yasin (April) International Academic Conference on Economic and Social Development.

Strategies for responding to global challenges


The latest issue of the Foresight and STI Governance journal (2023 vol. 17. No. 1) presents multi-vector strategies banks adopted during the pandemic, addresses the relationship between knowledge sharing and entrepreneurial potential, analyses the progress in developing energy storage technologies and novel cybersecurity solutions.

Complexity economics and hidden growth sources


Complexity economics is a new, rapidly unfolding phenomenon that presents a holistic view of reality, unveiling previously invisible processes and interdependences, and offering solutions to many complex socio-economic problems. Its key aspects, tools, and promising research areas were the focus of the expert workshop “Complexity Economics and Hidden Growth Sources” hosted by the  Foresight and STI Governance journal in the round table format on 22 December 2022.



The new issue of the Foresight and STI Governance journal (2021 vol. 15. No. 3) analyses the trends in, and various countries’ and sectors’ cases illustrating the transformation of innovative development management models to adapt to the changing context and meet new challenges.

Dealing with Complex Systems and Anticipating the Future


On 24 June, the editors of the Foresight and STI Governance journal jointly with prominent experts from the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, and Russia discussed new foresight methods in the context of complex systems. The lively debates opened up a new horizon of anticipating opportunities.
