About Us


The Future Insight e.V. association unites like-minded individuals and organizations in its mission to support the advancement of science and technology for the benefit of humanity, aligned on the three fundamental principles of truth, love, and hope – science, ethics, and inspiration. Our voice resonates unity, fusing precision and innovation for peace and growth. Anchored in truth, love, and hope, we foster collaborations, promote innovation, and support transformative and educational initiatives, nurturing the peaceful use of science. 
The non-profit association organizes the bi-annual Curious – Future Insight Conference – one of the world’s leading gatherings on science and technology. It covers a broad range of topics and brings together some of the world’s brightest scientists and innovators to solve the challenges of today and enable the dreams of a better tomorrow. The first conference was initiated by Merck, the world’s oldest pharmaceutical and chemical company, on its 350th anniversary in 2018, and triggered the birth of this global movement.
Join us at the Curious, a global summit tackling challenges and driving innovation. Our commitment: championing science, technology, and ethics, pursuing limitless possibilities.
