The ‘Scenario Exploration System’ (SES) is an award-winning future simulation tool developed by the JRC together with experts in serious games from the Hawaii Research Center for Futures Studies. It uses engagement techniques from the entertainment world to engage participants in the full richness of the systemic collective reflection created when building scenarios. The SES provides a platform that engages participants in future-oriented systemic thinking. It makes participants take action to reach their long-term objectives in contrasting scenario-related contexts while interacting with other stakeholders.
Our unit, in cooperation with the JRC, created in 2017, SES China, a SES version focused on China’s innovation landscape, based on the 4 scenarios for 2030, developed under the Dragon-Star Plus project.
