Centre for Future Societies Research

Organisation profile

Organisation profile

Centre for Future Societies Research carries out interdisciplinary investigations into complex ways of making our future world a better place. It gathers over 50 academic and research staff across seven Schools of Study.  This creates an exceptionally diverse collection of knowledge that is commensurable with the hard and open problems of increasing our understanding for the ways of creating better future societies.

The Centre links to the six university research themes of food, global economy, health and wellbeing, heritage, cultures and communities, information and security, and space. While the research themes have the ingredients of future societies, the Centre combines these ingredients in a range of joined-up ways to seek recipes for future societies. These recipes are evaluated using rigorous interdisciplinary methods in the context of global scenarios and the UN Sustainable Development Goals to create insights into the pathways towards values-led change in the global development.
