Welcome to the Finland Futures Research Centre!

The FFRC works with a transdisciplinary approach in an international environment.
The cornerstones of its activities are on developing academic futures studies,
critical interdisciplinary research, high quality education, strategic and business
foresight and insightfully produced futures knowledge.

All of the FFRC’s primary activities are focused on the promotion of a sustainable future, which is understood as being economically efficient, socially secure, fair, and culturally representative of our world society.

The main research areas of the FFRC include theoretical and methodological foundations of futures studies and foresight, large scale societal transitions, energy and environmental research, the agri-food sector, urban and regional development as well as the prospects of private consumption and education.

The FFRC trains futures-oriented experts by providing academic education for both under-graduate and postgraduate students.
