What’s New at the Institute?

CIFS were our expert consultants and companions on this journey who helped us explore the future in an innovative, engaging, and creative way. We were extremely pleased with the four future scenarios that emerged and which will inform the interventions we will develop.

Developing thought leadership positions on urban futures was a great project for us. CIFS did an outstanding job in providing future-driven perspectives on urban spaces.

It was reassuring to work with CIFS when formulating our long-term vision for the future Irish exports in the food and drink industry over the next 25 years.
