The Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies is a private organisation owned by its members - we are thus not connected to the universities or otherwise financed by public funding. We try to stay politically neutral.
Approximately forty academic employees work at offices in Malmö and Copenhagen. We gather a wide range of know-how in subject fields such as economy, political science, psychology, ethnography, and sociology.
There is no such thing as a formal futurology education, but we always welcome unsolicited requests to become part of our creative and dynamic organisation.
Please refer to the jobs page for more information.
All online material is in principle accessible to the public. It is thus allowed to use and copy articles and make citations of published work as long as good practice is respected.
Please refer to our press policy for more information.
