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.
Combining science, ethics and inspiration we strive to create a world that is peaceful, equitable and full of opportunities for growth and progress, aligned on the three fundamental principles of truth, love and hope.
We will achieve this by fostering collaboration, promoting innovation, and supporting research and education initiatives that have the potential to create a bright and peaceful future for all.
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. The event triggered the birth of this global movement in support of science, technology and ethics.
