Abstract: "Foresight on Information Society Technologies (IST) in the European Research Area" (FISTERA) is a thematic network of researchers. FISTERA aims to accelerate the process of decision-making in research and development for IST in the EU. It is designed to provide useful information about key technological developments and potentials, applications that have social and economic benefits and the challenges and opportunities that arise in this context. Over the last three years, FISTERA has analysed the trends, drivers and challenges -more generally speaking, factors- which will influence future IST development and deployment. Europe¿s position with regard to these "influencing factors" has been 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? This paper presents the FISTERA methodology and summarizes some of the FISTERA work.
