The FLAGSHIP project brings together a multidisciplinary team with recognised records of excellence in qualitative, as well as in quantitative forward-looking analysis. The Center for the Study of Democracy (CSD) is part of this ambitious research effort, contributing with its track record and expertise in the application of innovative research methods (foresight, big data, elaboration of indexes, etc.) in the fields of energy policy, anti-corruption and hidden economy. The FLAGSHIP project started in January 2013 and will last for a period of three years.
FLAGSHIP will analyse reference and alternative scenarios of long‐term demographic, legal, economic, social and political evolutions in Europe, without disregarding the global geopolitical context. FLAGSHIP research activities aim to strike a good balance between the enhancement of methodological approaches and the development of policy applications to address long-term scenarios of grand societal challenges. The result of this forward looking exercise will be a set of concrete policy recommendations for European institutions, as well as for all stakeholders striving to exploit the potential of transition and change for the future of the European Union.
