Check out new 2.5 version of the CfWI Horizon Scanning App.
The CfWI Horizon Scanning Hub is a collaborative platform for future-looking information, aimed at strengthening workforce planning within the health and social care sector. This App provides offline access to the ideas bank and project areas from the Hub. It is updated with new information when you are connected to WiFi, so you’ll always have access to the latest horizon scanning ideas from the CfWI.
The free-to-download iPad App allows users to easily keep track of CfWI projects, ideas, blogs and articles.
Our R&I solutions are powered by Diamond Frame, a fully-fledged content management system (CMS+), which allows your organisation to manage the content and functionalities of the FD Suite of Systems. Diamond Frame supports a wide range of user-friendly modular and customisable R&I systems, including:
- R&I Bank – to gather and codify strategic intelligence.
- R&I Scanner – to navigate through your strategic intelligence.
- R&I Tracker – to improve high-level management of key agendas.
- R&I Community – to support networking and stakeholder engagement.
- R&I Library – to collect and map codified knowledge and documents.
- R&I Mapper – to systematically monitor, analyse and position R&I.
- R&I Delphi – to assess and prioritise your strategic intelligence.
On 15 October 2012 we have publicly launched the CfWI Horizon Scanning ‘Hub’ available at http://www.horizonscanning.org.uk
The Hub was jointly developed by the CfWI, The University of Manchester and Futures Diamond. The following film explains the main demographic and financial challenges facing health and social care, before outlining why the CfWI has adopted horizon scanning as a means of helping organisations address these challenges. It explains:
- the CfWI horizon scanning methodology
- the projects where the CfWI has used horizon scanning
- the organisations with whom the CfWI works.
The video concludes by illustrating what people think of the CfWI approach, before explaining the future work of the CfWI, including the CfWI’s new online information hub, which is designed to assist organisations in their workforce planning.
As time changes forward today in many countries, we believe it is the right…
… time to launch the website of a new player aimed to support dynamic
… changes in terms of IT solutions for foresight, horizon scanning and
… forward-looking communities in Europe and the world.
Looking forward to working with you in the near future!
The iKNOW project has successfully developed a dynamic three dimensional (3D) tag cloud to visualise keywords associated to more than 400 wild cards and weak signals (wi-we) potentially shaping or shaking the future of science, technology and innovation in Europe and the world.

As the European Foresight Platform (EFP) project can be seen as the follow up of the European Foresight Monitoring Network (EFMN), the EFP Mapping Environment will be based on the proven concept of the EFMN Mapping activities. However, the lessons learned during the EFMN project will be integrated in the new EFP Mapping Environment.
The Mapping Environment will be both (a) an independent working environment for the EFP WorkPackage 2 activities lead by the University of Manchester and (b) a “plug-in” section of the EFP website (lead by TNO). The main objectives of developing a fully operational mapping environment are:
- To map foresight practices, outcomes and players
- To analyse key features and outputs of foresight exercises
- To put in place an interactive “Mapping Environment” for data input/validation/output
- To provide a common space to share and discuss foresight findings and documents
- To interact and share information with other work packages (especially the website)
- To network the Mapping Environment with other EC projects/networks (i.e. ERAWATCH, METRIS, iKNOW)
- To generate appealing information about practices and key findings of foresight exercises (producing annual mapping reports for different readership)
