Finland Futures Academy

The Finland Futures Academy (FFA) is a national network of 10 universities, facilitating academic educational and research programmes in Futures Studies and providing an avenue for researchers and universities to participate in international futures research networks. The coordinating unit of the FFA is the Finland Futures Research Centre at the University of Turku.

We aim to provide the platform for transforming national expertise into worldwide excellence. The FFA provides participants with new ways for succeeding in their own field by offering cooperation possibilities, collegiality and international connections, as well as providing innovative educational and research opportunities in futures research.

Board of the Finland Futures Academy

Each member university elects its own representative to join the Board of the Finland Futures Academy for a three-year term. The FFA’s coordinator officiates as the secretary of the Board. Every Board member represents a different scientific discipline.

The FFA Board members are responsible for the content, level and development of the various activities within the field of Futures Studies.

Contact Persons in the Member Universities

​Every member university of the FFA has a local contact person. These persons are responsible for organising and, in most cases, lecturing in Futures Studies courses. They also participate in the administrative tasks of the FFA together with the Board members of the FFA.

If you are interested in joining our courses organised in Finnish, please get in touch with the contact person of your university.
