Participate in an open lecture on future insights

Kazimieras Simonavičius University’s Big Data Competence Centre, in cooperation with the team at the strategic insight tool Futures Platform, is organising an open lecture on future insights named “Future or futures?” The lecture speaker will be Finnish scientist, futurologist and insights expert Dr. Tuomo Kuosa. The remote lecture will be held on April 8 at 4PM. We invite you to participate!

Often we associate predicting the future with mysticism, however, for long years now, this has also been an object of scientific study. Future insights are a means of thinking about the future, pondering on it and planning, creating innovations in various areas of public activities in pursuit of increased efficiency and increasing competitiveness in the face of contemporary global changes.

Futures Platform expert, futurologist Dr. Tomas Kuosa, who holds 15 years of experience in strategic insights, the development of future studies methodology and other areas related to future predictions will discuss:

  • What are the insights?
  • Insight methods and tools.
  • How to apply insights?

Registration will be held here up to April 7.
