FreedomLab started in 2000 as a Future Studies think tank, therefore conducting research into emerging technologies, and the possibilities to creatively apply these technologies. Since then, FreedomLab Thinktank 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. Our mission is to unlock society’s potential by decoding the future.
