Welcome to Futurion


Thinking together.


Research and insights.


Technology and innovation have always shaped society. Although things are moving at a rapid pace right now, we are not fully certain of into which direction we are headed.

Globalisation and digitalisation have given people the opportunity to travel, interact and exchange ideas, learn and adapt in completely new ways, like never before. Access to information has opened up minds to find alternative ways to live and create the future.

Simultaneously, these same factors have given rise to a complex world in which we live, act and work. Global competition is tougher and has altered in character. It has an impact on people, markets and communications. And it is a fact that the digital era has transformed our wants and needs. Some jobs will disappear, some will transform and others, previously unheard-of, formed.

Many questions arise. And what about those robots? Will they allow us to work less or does it mean we will only co-exist with them at the work place? Where will we live? And what will need to study and learn to keep up?

With these new questions, new solutions are formed to meet the challenges ahead. There are many good questions and just as many possible answers. Futurion wants to dissect the issues concerning future work life and the future of the Swedish labour market and understand them, in depth.
