We, NISTEP, have nearly 50 years’ experiences of foresight, along with an
examination of the evolution of the Science, Technology and Innovation (STI)
policy framework. We attempted to contribute to the process of formulating the S&T
Basic Plan, which was determined by the Cabinet. We are improving our foresight
to share future visions with our stakeholders in STI policy.
evidence-based policy making is significantly important to promote STI Policy
to obtain confidence of a citizen. It relates to the concept of open science
and open government. We would create new methods integrating conventional
foresight and “horizon scanning”.
