dc.description.abstractPurpose: This guest editorial aims at demonstrating the diversity of application fields in which FTA methods are being used and to offer a glimpse onto possible consequences that grand challenges may imply for the development of FTA. Design/Methodology/Approach: This introductory paper provides an overview of selected FTA 2011 conference contributions for this special issue. Findings: FTA approaches create spaces where an effective dialogue between key players in different policy domains facilitates vision-building and consensus-building for engineering major processes of transformation. Therefore, sound approaches of futures thinking will help to better address the grand challenges. Research limitations/implications (if applicable): From a large set of excellent papers presented at the FTA 2011 conference, only a restricted number of papers could be included in this special issue highlighting the broad diversity of FTA application fields in response to grand challenges. Practical implications (if applicable): FTA can contribute not only to the steering of diverse innovation systems, but also to their adjustment, adaptability and ability to shape responses to grand challenges. Social implications (if applicable): The papers of this special issue point to the need for FTA to take into account user perspectives and to shape the social context. Originality/Value: This special issue brings together the following papers which explore not only the opportunities and limitations of implementing FTA methods in a variety of policy domains but also their benefits in enabling a better understanding of complex systems which interact in each situation and in defining effective policy responses.de_CH
