We are seeking imaginative, challenging and transformative ideas about how we can make government better. Futures work can help to stretch our imaginations by considering what is desirable, what is plausible, and what should be avoided. The product of this work will be a collection of essays, provocations and future scenarios published at a major Nesta event in September 2019.

The year 2030 is chosen as its close enough to be imaginable, but far enough away for radical change to be contemplated. Futures work can help to stretch our imaginations by considering what is desirable, what is plausible, and what should be avoided. Find more information about the Open Call. We encourage you to delight and surprise us with your ideas.
 
 
 
Why do some startups in Europe scale while others struggle to grow? In a recent report we looked at different funding methods and real-life success stories to provide practical guidance on financing options that lead to growth. As part of our study, we spoke to 26 entrepreneurs from across Europe who explained their paths to success.

Find out about their journeys and what helped them to grow.
 
Can more be done to empower people as they navigate their experiences of cancer? With over 620 UK cancer charities offering guidance and support to those affected by cancer, information abundance can be almost as much of an issue as information scarcity. In particular, we welcome the focus on people having more control over their own health and more personalised care.

This is welcome recognition that people need emotional and practical support to build their confidence and motivation, and become active participants in decisions about their health and wellbeing - something we are exploring through Good Help. We explore ways that collective intelligence can enable citizens to be active decision makers in their treatment.
The century is still young but we’ve already seen scientific and tech breakthroughs make the leap from the margins to mainstream applications. Artificial intelligence in particular dominates public debate - but what’s on the horizon as the next generation of discoveries?

Nesta's new Tipping Point prize is looking for the best articles on technologies for the public good that are set to come of age in the coming decade.

Find out more about how to apply.
