The research field of end-user development has evolved, during recent years, to a certain degree of internal structure, problem awareness and consistency. Both academia and industry have begun to consider it an important field for research and development. In order to let EUD research contribute to the Information Societies, research and development must continue in a consolidated and well-balanced way. This chapter provides an overview of major challenges, motivates why these challenges should be addressed with considerable effort to bring about an Information Society with empowered end-users, and finally discusses how these challenges should be translated into a concrete research and development agenda for the short- and mid-term future.
