About Us

Institute for the Future (IFTF) is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) strategic research and educational organization celebrating nearly 50 years of forecasting experience. The core of our work is identifying emerging trends and discontinuities that will transform global society and the global marketplace. Our research generates the foresight needed to create insights that lead to action, and spans a broad territory of deeply transformative futures, from health and health care to technology, the workplace, learning, and human identity. As an educational organization, IFTF strives to comply with fair-use standards and publish only materials in the public domain under the Creative Commons 4.0 International License (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0).    

IFTF is based in Palo Alto, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley; a community at the crossroads of technological innovation, social experimentation, and global interchange. Founded in 1968 by a group of former RAND Corporation researchers with a grant from the Ford Foundation to take leading-edge research methodologies into the public and business sectors, IFTF is committed to helping organizations and individuals think strategically about the future in order to make better decisions today.
