The Future of Health (Live-online)

A primary healthcare focused masterclass

Two sessions from 9.00 - 12.30 (CET)
| Apr. 20 - Apr. 21 |

This masterclass takes you on a journey to what healthcare looks like in 2035 exploring opportunities, challenges, and facilitators along the way. It is designed to critically challenge your mindset through megatrends, futures methodology for prioritising initiatives for healthier futures.  

Who is this for?

The masterclass is designed for anybody who is interested in the health area or working in the public or private sector with an interest in understanding the future health paradigm. 

Background: Chronic diseases such as obesity, heart disease, and cancer have become the main killers in our society over the past few decades. 

Meanwhile we’re getting older in healthcare settings that are not equipped to handle the future needs.  

Since many of these non-communicable diseases to a large extend are preventable, we must shift our focus from purely treatment to more focus on prevention in the clinical settings and in all policies.  

To improve social settings and in our everyday life we must act now. How can we take a more holistic approach to stay as healthy as possible?  

This masterclass will provide you with:

  • Insight into the megatrends and health trends that shape the future and how they may affect health, health care systems and medical research 
  • Insight into technological innovation, new entrants in the health domain, new business models, disruptions etc. 
  • Learn to use the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies' approach to megatrends, futures thinking, analysis and decision making  
  • Exploration of plausible futures in the health domain 
  • An understanding of weights from the past, push from the present as well as pulls from the future and identify the potential clashes they will have 
  • The opportunity for networking and exchanging experiences and ideas with strategy leaders from other organisations and industries. 


The masterclass is facilitated live-online in two sessions, with 3.5 hours per live session (including 30-minute break). 

The masterclass consists of a mixture of live-online instruction and hands-on online workshop activities facilitated by the Institute's advisors/futurists with years of global experience. Throughout, we will contextualise and discuss what we have learned.
