The Phemonoe Lab coordinates and manages the operations of the Greek Node for the Millennium Project.
The Millennium Project connects futurists around the world to improve global foresight. It was founded in 1996 after a three-year feasibility study with the United Nations University, Smithsonian Institution, Futures Group International, and the American Council for the UNU. It is now an independent non-profit global participatory futures research think tank of futurists, scholars, business planners, and policy makers who work for international organizations, governments, corporations, NGOs, and universities.
The Millennium Project manages a coherent and cumulative process that collects and assesses judgments from over 3,500 people since the beginning of the project selected by its 49 Nodes around the world.
The work is distilled in its annual “State of the Future (SOF)”, “Futures Research Methodology” series, special studies, and integrated into this Global Futures Intelligence System.

The Greek Node of the Millennium Project
The Greek Node of the Millennium Project was created in 2010, with the aim to help in the modernization process of Southeastern Europe, by giving special emphasis on the implementation of the “science” of future studies through direct diffusion of the results to organizations, businesses and other stakeholders.
The mission of the “MillenniumProject” Greek node is to:
[a] promote an open dialogue between countries;
[b] contribute to the sustainable development of the sub-region; and
[c] support the integration of these countries to the European Union.
The Greek node was set up in November 2010. Members of the node are Universities, SME’s, NGO’s, state organisations, experts and the UNDP/BRC Regional Centre for PAR (RCPAR). The Greek node is located in Thessaloniki. Currently, its HQs are located in Emetris SA offices, in the Thessaloniki Innovation Zone.
