About Future Center Alliance

  • Creating effective and stimulating environments for breaking down barriers to collaborative innovation

  • Forging collaboration across borders of all kinds and championing creative work processes, methodologies and tools

We work through Future Centers and similar innovation environments to achieve these goals.
