About Us

A warm welcome to IF, the Institute of Futurology, home of enthusiasm about the future as an indispensable human and social asset.

Founded in 2012, the institute is a free-to-join, non-profit, international think tank dedicated to the advancement of foreknowledge, foresight and prescience - the capacity to know about the future of the world before it gets here. Contrary to received wisdom that the future is non-factual and unknowable, IF has developed a model for producing social foreknowledge based on an understanding of time, probability theory, the laws of nature and of history.

The Institute is registered as a Non Profit Company (NPC), number 2013/033962/08, under section 14 of the Companies Act, 2008.
