Abstract: The paper provides an account of the interface between policy and research on lifelong learning as experienced in a recent UK Foresight exercise. In 2008, the UK Government Office for Science published a lengthy report on what it called mental capital and well-being. Commissioned as part of the Foresight process – intended to help government anticipate emerging and urgent future developments - the report outlined a number of interventions that could be taken in the short to medium term in order to improve mental capital and well-being over the longer term. The paper concludes with reflections on the challenges and limitations of the researcher's role in policy development.
