Fast Forward Foundation, formerly known as Fondazione Farmafactoring, boasts a distinguished legacy of fostering and advancing scientific research within the European healthcare domain. With nearly two decades of dedication,
we have conducted extensive studies and supported cultural initiatives. In 2022, we embarked on a transformative journey, recognizing the need for a strategic shift to better serve our global community.
In December 2022, we approved our new Strategic Plan
2023 - 2027, propelling our organization into a fresh operational dimension and placing a strong emphasis on project development and collaborative efforts with stakeholders.
By addressing healthcare, social protection, and financial inclusion, we carve out a distinctive space in European Philanthropy, ultimately aiming at driving substantial change in the expansive realm of integrated welfare.
Simultaneously, we are actively constructing a comprehensive stakeholder engagement framework and nurturing partnerships with associations that share our vision and interests.
Our horizons are expanding as we extend our outreach to international communities, with the intention of establishing a robust network capable of propelling initiatives across Europe.
This strategic plan has been created with the aim of setting the stage for a promising and impactful journey ahead.
Promoting equitable access to healthcare and contribute to the sustainability of healthcare systems.
Expediting conscious access to integrated welfare systems.
Accelerating the adoption of digital payment methods to enhance financial inclusion within welfare systems, with a focus on vulnerable groups.
At Fast Forward Foundation, we consider "integrated welfare" as a dynamic synergy of public and private efforts, crafting tailor-made services that evolve with individuals throughout their lives. This holistic approach encompasses healthcare, income support, assistance for those in need, and lifelong learning. Welfare services can be provided by various stakeholders, including government agencies, non-profit organizations, and private entities.
Our three-year Operational Plan serves as the initial and significant step toward realizing our new Purpose. It takes an innovative approach, characterized by a structured project cycle. Our journey begins with an in-depth analysis and systematization of existing research within a specific project area. This phase includes the generation of reports and the convening of co-design laboratories aimed at identifying the most effective approaches to tackle current challenges.
By addressing healthcare, social protection, and financial inclusion, we carve out a distinctive space in the European Philanthropy, ultimately aiming at driving substantial change in the expansive realm of integrated welfare.
