Krom et al. give an in-depth account of a methodological experiment carried out in the PACITA project, namely the application in a cross-European context of the Future Panel method. Focusing on the complex issue of genomics and its potential use in public health care, parliamentarians from different countries were gathered to learn about and debate this far-reaching field of research in order to create a foundation for proactive policy formulation. The authors analyse and evaluate the project setup and argue that while further development and institutional is necessary to make similar future projects reach their full potential, the project nevertheless exemplifies the practicability and value of applying previously nationally contained TA methods in a cross-European setting.
