The world is changing fast. New technologies emerge. Notably, Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Information Science are creating a completely new ecosystem. Meanwhile, climate change does not relent. Therefore, the global political and international order is in transition. As a result, these evolutions redesign security, from traditional security to cybersecurity, from national to international security. Thus, uncertainty abounds. Changes impact private and public actors, from states and governments to business, NGOs, IGOs and the general public.

We provide foresight and insight into what is happening, what is likely to happen and how it affects us all.

We frequently address high-level executive briefings, large conferences, and international summits.
