Future Center Alliance

FCA: Future Center Alliance

FCA is an alliance of master practitioners in the art and practice of creating, running and supporting Future Centers. The goal of the Alliance is to promote the effective realization of the Future Center concept in diverse domains. The eight core partners are experienced professionals working in the field of social and societal innovation, intellectual capital and collaborative workspace design. Their work ranges from academic and action research to hands-on problem solving in practice.

FCA partners created and ran the world’s first Future Center at Skandia in the 1990’s. They are responsible for convening and leading the first two International Future Center Summits (2005 in The Netherlands and 2006 in Italy) and are currently organizing a 3rd Summit (2009 in Sweden).

FCA partners served as the management team of OpenFutures, the European Commission’s Future Centers project (2006-08), and alliance members formed the core group of this project.

Alliance partners leverage their core expertise, complementary skills, and extensive networks to collaboratively achieve client objectives. They advise on and support public sector renewal and private sector innovation in a dozen countries, and have actively participated in the development of Future Centers throughout the world.
