National Environmental Protection Agencies (EPA) have an increasingly important role in providing information and advice to governments. The European Environment Agency helped to set up a network of the EPAs in the European Union, gathering the heads of these institutions from EU Member States. Prospex helped the European Environment Agency in developing the capacity and shared understanding of the agencies involved in this network,
focussing on applied strategic foresight. Working directly with the heads of the agencies, Prospex introduced state-of-the-art approaches to scenario-based strategy development, applied it in test
cases and helped initiate common projects between participating agencies. This supported the development of the network and enabled concrete outcomes to move forward the exchange, leading to concrete better practice.
