Real-Time Delphi (RTD) Invitation




The Millennium Project's State of the Future Real-Time Delphi (RTD) Invitation

You are invited you to share your judgments about several developments that may influence the future.

All those who respond will receive the results of the study. No attributions will be made – your answers will not be associated with your name. However, if you would like to be quoted for a specific comment you make, then you can add your name next to that comment. Your email is only used as key for re-access to the online questionnaire, it will not be shared with any third party, and will be deleted from the system after the survey is closed. The demographic data you share will only be used for analysis in this study.

To access the questionnaire:

- Please go to www.realtimedelphi.net
- enter your email address and click "Submit"
- enter the study code: reset1
- click the link "Please click here to proceed”

If you have any difficulty, send an email to Elizabeth Florescu <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>. You do not have to answer all the questions – just those you feel comfortable answering and you do not have to complete the questionnaire on one visit. This is a unique questionnaire called a Real-Time Delphi (RTD) – you can return as many times as you wish, read others’ responses, and edit and re-edit your own answers as often as you like until the deadline of October 30th.

The results will be used by The Millennium Project in its next State of the Future report and by EY (Ernst & Young) in their next global report. You are also welcome to use the results citing the source as The Millennium Project and EY.
