Foresight has become a science dedicated not only to anticipating potential long-term trendsor scenarios, but also to agreeing on a desired or preferable future and defining actions for its construction from the present. "Competitiveness for the wellbeing of Euskadi" (hereinafter,Euskadi 2040) is a transformative research initiative promoted by Orkestra - Basque Institute of Competitiveness and the Basque Government. Its main objective is to identify what the competitiveness challenges of the Basque Country are and how they are changing, in order to build a sustainable and inclusive wellbeing model for the next generation. Thus, Euskadi 2040 responds to two needs:

1. The need to adopt a proactive approach to the future with the horizon of the next generation.
2. The need to measure and understand progress beyond an exclusively economic perspective, opting for a directionality towards inclusive and sustainable wellbeing.
