The Nordic ICT Foresight project was launched in May 2005
with research partners VTT Technical Research Centre of
Finland, FOI (Sweden), SINTEF (Norway) and DTI (Denmark).
The aim of the project was to contribute to the strategic
intelligence of the Nordic knowledge region so that the
full potential of information and communication
technology can be exploited to increase the welfare in
the Nordic countries. The focal areas of the ICT
applications in this study were experience economy,
health, production economy and security. In the research
process there were five research phases: 1) desktop
survey, 2) SWOT analysis, 3) scenario and vision
workshop, 4) roadmapping workshop and 5) action workshop.
The research phases (3, 4 and 5) were carried out as
focused workshops that applied different methods.
Publication presents scenarios, roadmaps and action path
analyses of the potential developments of ICTs on the
Nordic level. Policy recommendations were formulated on
the basis of the research process. Policy recommendations
were divided into implementation strategies, i.e. actions
that should be proactively pushed through on the Nordic
level, and adaptive strategies, i.e. actions that are
more reactive in the face of global developments.
