Hybrid foresight research platform


At the crossroads of economic, urban, academic and cultural spheres

Crafting the Future Together

We work with companies, cities, universities and cultural places in France and abroad (since 2000).

The crisis and transitions we are currently experiencing create increasing uncertainties and anticipating the future has become a necessity for many of us in order to make decisions and move on.

The future is a vast territory of potentialities to be explored via various research methods.

Although it is a knowledge intensive practice, foresight is not a science and remains an art. We favor custom-made research methods and design context-specific "future labs" to innovate, include, engage, open the spectrum of possible futures and give meaning to action (and to the art of foresight).
