Structure and Motivation

The third CIB Workshop in Freiberg aimed at the final evaluation and discussion of the developed storylines. The findings of the first two CIB workshops were processed by the project team (FZ Jülich and TU Bergakademie Freiberg) and the application of the CIB method resulted in 26 consistent scenarios. Furthermore, approaches of implementing the developed storylines into the models of the project partners were discussed.

 Short Overview of Results:

The first part of the workshop focused on the final presentation and evaluation of the developed story lines. During this section, the participating experts verified that the scenarios did not show any inconsistencies or logical errors.

Application of the CIB produced a scenario-room of 26 consistent scenarios. Those scenarios were clustered in four groups:

  • Restauration of the EU
  • Dash for Gas
  • Green Prosperity
  • Renaissance of the Nation State

The four groups show a strong congruency with regard to their substance and basic assumptions about future developments. For each cluster one representative scenario was chosen. The resulting four scenarios were described by narratives, which were presented during the third CIB Workshop.

The second part of the workshop concentrated on the implementation of the presented storylines into the models of the project partners. Special focus was the translation of the descriptors’ variations into the model frameworks.
