In Early June, Nick, Amos and Markku presented their paper entitled “Collision Point Among Bioeconomy Worlds, Toward Year 2125” on the 6th International Conference on Future-Oriented Technology Analysis (FTA) – ‘Future in the Making’ in Brussels.
This paper was written based on the results from the initial Horizon Scanning for the BioEcoJust project. The paper explores potential blind-spots and unknown futures of the bioeconomy and present preliminary scenarios as worldmaking.
