The Metaverse

Sign up to receive the whitepaper (updated version 1.1, August 2022), 'The Future of the Metaverse', and dive into the future of the Metaverse.

The Metaverse

The Metaverse has emerged as the next big thing after mobile internet, and the term ”Metaverse” has exploded in popularity over the last year. However, the phrase is often used without a definition, and when it does have a definition, it is often rather vague – and the implications are often challenging to comprehend.

At the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies, we believe that the Metaverse is a concept that we need to dive deeper into when it comes to the possible futures. Rather than defining what it is today, we find it more productive to define what it might become. Once the technologies and use cases supporting the concept have matured, the Metaverse will revolutionise our society. This creates a need for anticipation and preparation.
