This article aims to present the methodology of the FISTERA (Foresight in Information Society Technologies in the European Research Area) network and to summarize the work it has carried out over the last 3 years. It also provided the participants of the FISTERA Conference (held at the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies, 16-17 June, Seville, Spain) with an introduction to the network’s work as a basis for debate. The network has analysed the trends, drivers and challenges which will influence future IST development and deployment. Europe’s position with regard to these ‘influencing factors’ were analysed in order to find answers to questions like: What are the elements of Europe’s strengths and weaknesses in ICT as compared to its global competitors? What are the opportunities, threats and challenges for Europe? What should be done to improve Europe’s situation?
