What is the Learning Planet Institute?

The Learning Planet Institute is the new iteration of the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity, or CRI, started by researchers François Taddei and Ariel Lindner in 2006. As suggested by its name, the Learning Planet Institute is a driver of the learning-society revolution that believes learning, research, collective intelligence, and creativity can help both people and organizations adapt to the increasingly complex challenges of our rapidly changing world.

We are a research-and-development center as well as a graduate and post-graduate school developing programs for kindergarteners and doctoral students alike and every age in between—and even for continuing-education learners. We likewise offer services to government agencies, companies, and other types of organizations as they embark on their learning-society transformation. Our unique position as a digital-innovation hub tapped into a global community of change-makers lets us explore and share knowledge in new ways at an unprecedented scale, all for the purpose of facing head on the great social and environmental challenges of our time.

Thanks to long-standing partners the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation, University Paris Cité, CY Cergy Paris University, the French General Secretariat for Investment, the City of Paris, Inserm (the French Institute of Health and Medical Research), and UNESCO, the Learning Planet Institute can continue in the CRI’s legacy as an agent of change where research and entrepreneurship come together to have a real impact in making the world a better place for live.
