In order to foster discussions and to create a pragmatic approach an interesting and active methodology was used: small working groups, well-defined themes or the grouping of the attendees by its nature (AB, Partners, JPIs, GPS EU) followed by a plenary session for each of the topics discussed. 

Among the speakers, representatives from JPIs described their experience regarding Foresight. Experts on the issues were also invited to share their views. The workshop had a very large attendance with the participation of JPIs´, GPC (High Level Group) representatives.
