AIC Foresighting Final Report Lessons.pdf

<p>The Australia-Indonesia Centre is collaboratively researching solutions to shared national challenges in four Clusters: </p> <p>* Energy<br>* Infrastructure<br>* Agriculture and Food<br>* Health</p> <p>In 2015 a Cluster Investment Plan (CLIP) was developed for each Cluster. This was undertaken through planning workshops held in Australia and Indonesia. In November 2014, CSIRO was contracted by the AIC to assist with the Cluster planning process by applying its ‘foresighting’ method, which analysed key trends in each theme towards 2030 and beyond. The over-arching goal was ‘to support the development of CLIPs which focus on priority research areas of shared interest between Australia and Indonesia, and to promote integration, synergy and learning amongst the Cluster teams’.</p> <p>The objectives of the Foresighting Project were:</p> <p>1. For each Cluster, analyse megatrends and megashocks with shared relevance for Australia and Indonesia to support the development of each CLIP;<br>2. Develop exploratory scenarios with AIC partners of Australian and Indonesian regional development to identify and integrate research priorities within and between Clusters;<br>3. Test and apply the DFAT-CSIRO Research for Development Alliance method to assess the learning and integration achieved amongst AIC researchers as a result of the foresighting.</p><p></p>
