The purpose of this research is to investigatethe impact of foresight on Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Policy making at the national level. We use a survey questionnaire and Structural Equation Model (SEM) to analyze the data. Research findings show that foresight process affects policymaking in two ways: directly with networking and mutual learning and indirectly through Foresight outcomes and products. Another finding shows that Foresight plays an effective role in improving STI policymaking due to active participation of experts and knowledge links shaped between policy making/decision making players and institutions.
