Future Forum

The Future Forum aims to study and transmit knowledge about the great challenges of the future, anticipating them, identifying them and taking them to public discussion, in order to create and increase critical mass able to promote adaptation and change.

In this sense, it pays particular attention to the disruptive issues of our near future, namely demographic, economic, political, democratic and environmental challenges, as well as technological trends and issues concerning Europe. In conjunction with other foundations, universities and national and European think thanks, it identifies and studies the best way to integrate and face these issues.

The communication of the results achieved, supported by diversified materials accessible in various media, is done through meetings and workshops with experts, stakeholders and journalists, as well as conferences and other events aimed at the general public, in person and on the Internet.
