The Millennium Project [[1]] is an independent international think tank with 33[[2]] Nodes around the world that gathers and accesses information on futures studies that produces the annual State of the Future report since 1997 and the Futures Research Methodology series Versions 1-3.

The Project was formed by the Futures Group International, the American Council for the United Nations University, the Smithsonian Institution, and the United Nations University (UNU) via a three year feasibility study in 1992 funded by the US EPA, UNDP, and UNESCO, after a one year pre-feasibility study indirectly funded indirectly the MacArthur Foundation as a general grant to aC/UNU. Since the beginning of operations in 1996, about 2,700 futurists, scholars, decision-makers, and business planners from over 50 countries have contributed with their views to the Millennium Project research.

The Project now has nodes in 32 countries. These are independent organizations (composed of both organizations and individuals from different institutional categories - government, corporations, NGOs, universities, individuals, and UN or international organizations - which acts like a transinstitution) which co-operate with each other and the Project to provide an international perspective on futures research. The Project is currently directed and coordinated by Jerome C. Glenn.

The Project publishes the annual State of the Future report, now in its 13th edition (2009) and containing almost 100 print pages and around 6,700 CD pages of data and analysis.
