The Central Institution for the Finland Node of the Millennium Project is Finland Futures Academy (FFA).

Finland Futures Academy is a national network of the universities aimed at the academic educational and research programmes in the futures studies. FFA was established on the 2nd of February 1998, and the members are: University of Helsinki, Helsinki School of Economics and Business Administration, University of Joensuu, University of Jyväskylä, University of Kuopio, University of Lapland, University of Oulu, Universty of Art and Design Helsinki, Swedish School of Economics and Business Administration, Tampere University of Technology, Lappeenranta University of Techonology, University of Tampere, Helsinki University of Technology, Turku School of Economics and Business Administration, University of Turku, University of Vaasa and Åbo Akademi University.

The Chairman of the Board is Aaltonen Mika, Development Director of Finland Futures Research Centre.

The vision behind the establishment of FFA is that there will be no direct competition between nation states or individual universities in the future but merely between European and global research networks. Therefore, the aim of FFA is to grow to an international network (World Futures Academy, WFA), the activities of which will be coordinated in Finland. In the near future, some of the FFA courses will be implemented together with the international partners. Prominent futurists from different scientific disciplines have been invited to the Advisory Board of the World Futures Academy.
