Research at Finland Futures Research Centre

Futures research is an interdisciplinary field, where wide ranges of topics are analysed and the approaches and results of more traditional disciplines meet.

Typical research questions in the field are focused to the epistemology of knowledge about the future, the methodological development of futures studies tools and analyses of alternative futures of a specific topic or a more general theme.

As a societal action, the aim of futures studies is to outline alternative long-term strategies in a changing operational environment.
