From Permanent Future Lab

The Permanent Future Lab movement is founded by Jurjen de Vries and Samir Lahiri. Jurjen was inspired by and the Society 3.0 book. By sharing his Google Glass to visitors he discovered that unexpected things happened. Jurjen also met Samir in an unexpected way. By sharing their passion for innovation they started a journey that created the Permanent Future Lab. The first location where space is being provided to share innovation is Utrecht CS (the Netherlands).

Others have been joining the movement by sharing abundant values like innovative hardware and time. Anybody can share at any publicly available space. To optimally facilitate this, the initiators discovered a few roles that can be used for setting up any physical location of a Permanent Future Lab.

People participating in the movement agree to:

  • Follow the Permanent Future Lab movement philosophy which is based upon three core values.
  • Work by intrinsic motivation.
  • Have and share abundance.
  • Have a click together.


A (co)initiator with passion for innovation and hardware. Sometimes a geek or nerd. The initiator is more then average busy with discovering new innovations and is social in sharing findings and knowledge.
