The thematic network "Foresight on Information Society Technologies in the European Research Area" (FISTERA) was set up to contribute to a common vision and approach towards the Information Society in an enlarged Europe in 2010. It aimed to create a pan-European platform on foresight in Information Society Technologies (IST), involving a wide range of key EU and national IST policy makers and players. In the course of the three year project, FISTERA had face-to-face dialogues with approximately 600 experts, each of whom participated in one of the 21 workshops or thematic meetings in the EU Member States and in the final conference. This report summarizes the FISTERA findings and proposes some policy options.
