OEF's Future Labs Department develops new programs for the foundation in order to further its mission of peace through governance. Future Labs also houses its own projects which work to enhance human collaboration in the interest of peace, benefitting OEF programs through technological and methodological innovations as well as access to new networks.
Future Labs is currently working on two potential programs/projects:
SAFE Network: The Shared Awareness, Fusion, and Engagement (SAFE) Network program seeks to harness non-classified data and analytics to reduce risks associated with nuclear weapons.
CoLab: Working closely with renowned negotiation expert and OEF Board Member William Ury, CoLab is exploring ways to amplify, distill, and democratize the practical wisdom of successful conflict transformation.
