Future Thinking


This workshop is organized together with our partner institutions:

  • Medizinische Hochschule Hannover
  • Georg-August-Universität Göttingen

Do you wonder what the world will look like in ten or fifteen years? How do you and your research fit into future scenarios? In this workshop, you will learn techniques to venture a glimpse into the unknown as well as to learn about trend analysis to find future visions and innovation potential.



Future Thinking
  • Learn and reflect on relevant future trends in a specific field (STEEP trend & key factor analysis)
  • Discover possible futures that are worth being prepared for
  • Develop a future scenario that you would like to make a reality


Our workshops are tailored to PhDs and postdocs of all disciplines, as well as early-career researchers and academic staff.

Our workshops are held in English. They are intended for participants at level B2 or higher of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
