OPTI in Spanish Autonomous Regions
Since the year 2001 OPTI's collaboration with Spanish Autonomous Regions has been set out as a priority in the strategic directives laid down by the board of trustees, and currently accounts for one of the OPTI Foundation's primary areas of activity.
This collaboration can be divided into three types of activities (not exclusive of others that may come about in the future), these are:
The presentation of results from foresight studies
Since the year 2001, seminars for presenting the results of foresight studies have been carried out in practically all of the autonomous regions of Spain. In each of these, the presentation has been focused on the priority sectors for the regional governments, in view of the current state of production in the respective regions. These seminars have led to valuable forums of debate amongst the local agents from the sectors in question.
Some of Spain's autonomous regions have promoted foresight studies
relating to sectors of special strategic importance to them. Some of
the most noteworthy cases, amongst others are:
Planning of future strategies based on foresight at the service of regional technology policy
In these projects the best courses of action and priorities with regards
to technology policy for the regions in question are identified, through
the analysis of evolutionary trends identified in foresight studies.
This analysis is carried out by sectoral expert panels that are representative
of the regions active agents. Projects of this type have been carried
out in Navarre, Madrid, Murcia, Extremadura, La Rioja and the Canary
