Case studies / selection
Current topics of focus
Various projects have led us to spend more time in the following fields, lately:
- Space (commercialization, moon habitat, resources, tourism, leisure)
- Museums institutions (purpose and strategy reorientation)
- Alcoholic beverages (and non alcoholic alternatives)

Space’ibles by CNES
Mycelium works best with
- foresight departments,
- future laboratories,
- in-house future oriented starts-ups
- public institutions,
- public policy makers
- think tanks.
Mycelium aims at helping build common futures and a certain idea of living together.
Here are some case studies of projects for which Mycelium has provided its expertise. Several projects are confidential, so we have chosen to not be exhaustive.
SPACE’IBLES (by CNES) 2021-2023
Scenario workshop concept and moderation “Leisure and space tourism in 2050”
For Space'ibles Mycelium is currently carrying out a research in the field of leisure and space tourism in the horizon 2050+. This research will be the basis of a work of elaboration of scenarios which will be given to CNES with the concrete recommendations from the workshop participants in June 2023. This research session, the third of this think tank -observatory of space foresight-, will bring together the usual actors of the space sector and new actors.
Scenario workshop concept and moderation “Resources and Energy, Impact and Use on the Moon in 2050”
In June 2020, France and Germany expressed the wish to elaborate a joint strategic foresight work in the field of space activities, the first focus of which would address lunar resources. The innovation of this project resided in the diversity of the participants, traditional and not traditional space actors -including space agencies, academia, industry and start-ups- as well as the attempt to co-develop the tools which would help producing French-German foresight work in the long run. Mycelium co-elaborated an ad hoc scenario building methodology and moderated the several workshops leading to concrete recommendations to the both agencies in June 2021.
French German Foresight Research
For Gerpa, we lead a study on the differences and similarities in strategic foresight approaches between France and Germany in both private and public sectors. It was also a question of understanding the various meanings of the word future. This work was based on a literature review as well as on a large number of interviews in the German-speaking world.
Fondation Ricard (2017)
Strategic foresight research
For the Ricard Foundation, we developed different scenarios for the evolution of the relationship with the holding, while respecting the DNA and challenges of these two entities. The aim was not only to audit the current situation but also to propose a perspective of creative evolution.
Strategic foresight research
With BIG (Breakthrough Innovation Group by Pernod Ricard), for example, we led (2015 to 2018) various 360-degree long-term researches on societal changes such as new retail, female empowerment, or distant togetherness. Our work went from defining the scope to analyzing results and drawing insights for a new strategy. Our research mixed desk, visual as well as field research: strategic watch, trend tours, expert interviews (Delphi method), focus group recruitment, and analysis.
