Futures Research is Interested in Alternative Futures

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.

With its internationally active and multidisciplinary personnel and through
co-creation with its societal partners, the FFRC is expertly able to meet the needs of its partners and customers, which range from academic institutions to public organizations and the business world.

Nationally, the FFRC carries out its special task as a developer and innovator
of futures research and foresight in Finland. In addition, it serves as the permanent advisor of the Committee for the Future of the Finnish Parliament. This provides an excellent way to keep in touch with Finnish decision-makers.

The annual Futures Conferences of the FFRC bring together world-renowned futurists and researchers from various fields as well as Finnish citizens and decision-makers.
