Conference “Forecasting the Future for Sustainable Development"

We are pleased to announce that on June 16-18, 2021, the conference “Forecasting the Future for Sustainable Development: Approaches to Modelling and the Science of Prediction” will take place.

The event is promoted by CEST in collaboration with OECD-NAEC and is supported by the Young Scholars Initiative of the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET), IN Srl and LexisNexis®️ IP.

The aim of the workshop is to tackle the complex challenge of modeling and forecasting towards more sustainable goals. We will focus on new approaches and discuss a broad range of topics including SDGs and ESG impact evaluation, bibliometrics, patent analytics and foresight methods by bringing together leading scientists, young scholars and policymakers.

Keynote speakers will be:
