2022 Strategic Foresight Report – Twinning the green and digital transitions in the new geopolitical context published by European Commission (6/2022).
The world is experiencing tectonic geopolitical shifts, reinforcing the megatrends already affecting the EU. The long-term implications of Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine, including for energy, food, economy, security, defence and geopolitics, will clearly affect Europe’s path to achieving fair green and digital transitions. However, these and other future challenges will not divert the European Union from its long-term objectives. With the right set of policies, they can serve as a catalyst to speed up achieving them. Ultimately, this could foster our resilience and open strategic autonomy in various areas, from energy, food, security and critical supplies – including raw materials needed for the transitions – to cutting-edge technologies.
