If the companies fall into crisis, it often helps to just escape to the front. So, at least, Sascha Dannenberg from the Institut Futur of the Free University (FU) Berlin explains the current Hype about the future of research. Dannenberg coordinated at the FU a master's degree programme with the same title and reported "extremely high" number of applicants this year. "Situations like the Corona of a crisis for a lot of uncertainty and need for orientation," says Dannenberg.

"orientation knowledge", it is also to convey to the Master, which change's potential in politics, business, technology, and society. "With the view in the crystal ball, we have nothing to do," says Dannenberg. On the study plan words how to change the world of work, technology is in fact engraving, assessment, political utopias, automation, post-growth follow – the really big chunks so.

The four-semester master's degree programme in Germany is unique in this Form, will cost the students a total of 5200 Euro plus semester fees. He starts each winter semester. The job opportunities estimates Dannenberg, very good: Many of the graduates went into the research, would be in the innovation departments of companies or acted as a consultant for organizations.
