We are taking a new methodology and methods-based approach to short executive courses to provide agile and rapid training on common methodologies and methods used in foresight and futures studies. Our method-based approach will be beneficial for anyone interested in designing, implementing, coordinating, managing or evaluating (both ex ante and ex post) processes related to foresight projects or the application of specific foresight methods. 

Together with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd we are launching a new set of online courses focused on foresight ‘methods’. The course is structured around six lectures and three interactive sessions delivered in a 3-half day programme (including optional individual and group practical exercises).

Course certificate from The University of Manchester will be provided.

You may register for one half day, two half days or the full course.  Costs are shown in the brochure. To book your place, please contact the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research (MIOIR) manager Deborah Cox.
