Erik F. Øverland was lecturing at UNIDOs international training on technological foresight.
Mr. Øverland attended and contributed to UNIDOs seminar on Technology Foresight in Bratislava 14th to 17th of march. Among several distinguished actors in the field Mr. Øverland was lecturing about "Perspectivist Scenariomethodology" and used cases to demonstrate both experiences with and approaches to scenariobuilding as a tool for strategic thinking and long term planning.
Allthough the topic was technological foresight most of the contributors went far beyond a strict technological approach. Mr. Øverland argued between other things in favour of a socio technical framework for foresight studies also for those related to tehncology development.
