NRC Future Affairs

In this podcast, Wouter van Noort (journalist NRC) and Jessica van der Schalk (philosopher FreedomLab) explore the future with pioneers and experts who only have one thing in mind: a better future. We try to get a glimpse of what is coming our way and what we can do to bring about positive change.

Think Tank

FreedomLab has evolved into a group of young thinkers with diverse backgrounds: philosophy, economics, man-machine interaction, social science and innovation studies. This combination of perspectives allows Freedomlab to shed new light on both current and future affairs.
