New logo - new initiatives

At the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies, we are in rapid development. Just like the world around us - and just as many of our members also experience.

We take the consequence and introduce a range of new services, which will prepare our members better to act quickly: Early warnings, 1-2-1 relationships to our futurists, and new innovation and strategy products. We emphasize this in our new payoff FAST FORWARD and in our new design.
