Future Trends Forum

Future Trends Forum

The Future Trends Forum is the only international, multidisciplinary think tank focused on innovation. Made up of more than 400 experts, the FTF anticipates the future by detecting trends in innovation and analyzing their impact on our society and business models. 

Every year we ask our experts to detect the innovative trends that will have the largest impact on our near future. Once the trends to be discussed are chosen, our experts lend a helping hand to define the key issues to be analyzed as part of each trend and identify the key experts from around the world. This set of experts will ultimately collaborate with us to anticipate challenges brought about by each trend. After an on-site meeting in Madrid, the conclusions drawn by our experts during the Future Trends Forum are discussed in a forward-looking report that presents as well an overview of the trend. The report focuses on drawing conclusions about the potential socioeconomic impact of the trend discussed, particularly as it affects Spain, in order to communicate pragmatic, down-to-earth knowledge to our target audience. These contents are published on our website and spread via ad-hoc conferences around Spain, seeking the goal of anticipating the future and encouraging innovation in society.
