The field of anticipation studies all phenomena in both the human and natural world in which potential futures are in some way considered, and have an effect, in the present.
Project Anticipation is the website of the UNESCO Chair in Anticipatory Systems awarded to Roberto Poli, University of Trento. Formally speaking, the chair's activities will begin January 1, 2014. However, since the project is on the many forms of anticipation, and a crucial aspect of anticipation is taking antecedent actions, the project's advance publication shouldn’t come as a surprise.
The website comprises a forum and a newsletter. If you are interested in anticipation, its theory and applications, please subscribe.
