About Nesta

Nesta is an innovation foundation. For us, innovation means turning bold ideas into reality and changing lives for the better. We use our expertise, skills and funding in areas where there are big challenges facing society.

This year, we’re predicting that a new online political party will emerge in the UK, there will be new ways to interact with our national museums and galleries, and there will be a surge in young people expressing their creativity using new digital tools.

We hope you enjoy this year’s predictions.

Alongside our predictions series we're looking at the process of prediction itself, with a focus on prediction markets and tournaments. Read more about our work exploring the re-emergence of prediction as sport.

For those keen to find out how well we did with our 2014 predictions, here are few highlights from last year’s forecasts.
