The Observatory for Industrial Technology Foresight (OPTI) started operating at the end of 1997, as a result of an initiative of the then Ministry of Industry and Energy. Three years on, OPTI was established as a foundation, under the auspices of the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade. Represented amongst The Foundation's trustees are Spain's most important scientific and technological entities.
The Foundation's objective is to create a knowledgebase on the most
relevant technology trends for future economic and social development,
therefore providing support for decision-making regarding technology
in both public and private fields. This objective stems from today's
highly complex and changing technology panorama. In the current context,
technology watch and foresight play vital roles as strategic tools at
the service of enterprises and public administrations.
