FP Analytics applies its rigorous research capabilities to the ideation and production of scenario-based crisis simulations that facilitate innovative thinking to help meet partners’ diplomatic, strategic, or business objectives. FP’s Simulations and PeaceGames are held in person as well as on a bespoke virtual platform that enables simultaneous participation from around the world. They can be closed-door or as part of a public forum.

Enhancing Cyber-Nuclear Security: Strengthening Global Energy, Food, and Health Systems

On October 21, 2022, FP Analytics partnered with Schmidt Futures to hold an in-person simulation in Washington, D.C. to tackle complex, transnational security issues. The researched-based hypothetical scenario challenged Schmidt Futures' International Strategy Forum (ISF) Fellows to tackle threats posed by emerging technologies to global cybersecurity, energy security, emergency prepardness, food security and trade, and mis- and disinformation.

Climate & Food Security in the Asia Pacific

For the second consecutive year, FP Analytics and World Vision partnered to hold a virtual simulation featuring a research-based hypothetical scenario grounded in a multi-sector framework for assessing risk and fostering resilience across the humanitarian, development, and peace nexus. The 2022 simulation challenged participants from around the world to tackle the complex political, socio-economic, and environmental factors that are eroding livelihoods, increasing human and ecosystem vulnerability, and contributing to conflict and migration in the Asia-Pacific region, specifically near Bangladesh, Myanmar, and India.

Space and Maritime Security in the South China Sea

As part of a special collaboration, FP Analytics and the Anwar Gargash Diplomatic Academy (AGDA) developed the Future Diplomats PeaceGame to engage and train the next generation of foreign policy leaders. In 2021, over 20 young diplomats from 14 countries participated in FP's custom-built Virtual PeaceGame Platform for an immersive and interactive simulation that challenged participants to grapple with the international security and governance issues emerging from the development of advanced weapons and technologies in space.
