Future Center Summit in May 2018

The Future Center Alliance (FCA – in cooperation with the FCA of Japan (FCAJ), Copenhagen’s Bloxhub, Malmö’s Öresund Future Hub, and SONY Mobile Communications – is organizing the 6thGlobal Future Center Summit this Spring.  The Summit will take place in Copenhagen, Malmö and Lund, on 6-8th May 2018.

The Summit will be like a pop-up prototyping lab, testing new ways of thinking and working, using real world challenges as an agenda, and real world locations as its playing field.

The event will bring together approximately 40-50 people who are directly engaged with future centers, living labs, policy labs and innovation labs of all kinds, in order to exchange ideas and good practice about supporting societal renewal and collaborative innovation in dedicated innovation-enabling work environments. Participants will be facilitated to explore new ways to work together on concrete projects in the coming years.

The theme of this Summit is Bridges: Co-Creating Impact Across Borders.

Each Future Center Summit since 2005 has been a journey, and for the first time this Future Center Summit will be a cross-border journey both geographically and metaphorically.

In this nomadic, three-day prototyping Lab, people will visit and experience several world class Future Centers and Innovation Centers to explore and co-create new ways to drive impact in diverse settings, using insights and learnings from the places they visit, the Future Center operating principles, and the multi-intelligence that participants bring.

People from Future Centers, Living Labs and Design Labs from the Netherlands, England, Sweden, Denmark, France,  Turkey, Israel, Japan, Korea and Argentina have already confirmed their participation.

Themes to explore include:

  • How to leverage diversity, creativity and passion for societal change
  • How to orchestrate cross border collaboration to deal with boundary-spanning issues
  • Creative spaces of tomorrow
  • How to use a visioning process to bring 2050 up close and personal
  • How to create 3rdgeneration Future Centers which integrate concepts from Future Centers, Innovation Centers and Living Labs
