Welcome to Foresight
We use the latest scientific and other evidence combined with futures analysis to tackle complex issues and help policy makers make decisions affecting our future.
Our work makes a critical contribution to meeting important challenges of the 21st century - such as food security, flooding and obesity.
Foresight Projects are in-depth studies examining major issues 20-80 years in the future.
Foresight current projects are:
Shorter Foresight projects that help UK policy-makers deliver key policy agendas by providing futures and evidence analysis to fill a specific gap in existing understanding.

The Foresight Horizon Scanning Centre does short projects looking at discrete issues across the entire public policy spectrum.
Our toolkits and networks look to strengthen futures thinking capacity and share best practice within and across government.
