As a futures organisation, what we do is influenced by the Foresight triangle.
In practice this translates into half a dozen main activities:
We mainly carry out part-funded European Commission policy-related projects (usually as members of consortia) or projects funded by Charitable Foundations. Current projects that we’re involved in, such as Chrodis plus (an EC Joint Action) or COMPAR-EU (a Horizon 2020 project) are listed in our ‘News and Events’ section. You will find past projects in our Project Archive Section.
From time to time we have held on-line strategic conversations with systems analysts, with expert communicators (such as Dave Cormier who invented the MOOC) and with our partner FEASTA, an Irish charity dedicated to protecting the environment
Expressions of opinion in our area of interest are always welcome. These tend to be posted on our Current News section. We are considering a programme of invited blogs from members of the EHFF Community in the near future.
This is a new venture for us in 2019. To begin, we’ve collaborated with FEASTA on a series of five, looking at related issues including health and the environment, led by Seán Conlan from EHFF and Caroline Whyte from FEASTA. All five recorded podcasts are available now on the FEASTA website.
EHFF regularly gets invited to participate in European conferences, at least six times a year. Presentations appear either in the News section if within 2019 or in the Library archive for previous years.
Another occasional activity. In the past, in partnership with a UK Charity, we held a multi-professional meeting on Values in Management, recently, as part of the rollout of the CEMPaC project (Centre for EMpowerment of citizens and Communities) we have started a series, contracted by the Irish Health Service Executive, on patient empowerment (outputs to be posted subsequently if HSE agrees).
