The Institute for Futures Studies is an independent research foundation that promotes future perspectives in research and public debate. It is the responsibility of the Director to decide what research will be conducted at the Institute, and the Director is appointed by the board. The Institute is financed partly through a government subsidy and partly through external funding from research councils.

The current Director Gustaf Arrhenius is Professor of Practical Philosophy and his research program will among other things concentrate on our responsibility for future generations.
