Learning Transitions...

... with collective intelligence, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and citizen science

In order to promote the transformation of learning – and thus to have a positive impact on the planet – the R&D hub uses research and technology to develop projects focusing on Artificial Intelligence (AI), learning and collective intelligence, and frugal innovation. These projects are thought of and conducted according to their final purposes. 

R&D is a fundamental, interdisciplinary activity. It fuels and supports the four other main activities of the Institute (Education, International Alliance, Transformation of Organisations and Digital Ecosystems). 

The Learning Planet Institute encourages and implements an inclusive and open R&D: everyone is a potential researcher.

The Learning Transitions Research Unit

The Learning Transitions Research Unit (UR LT) is the research component of the collaboration established in 2023 between CY Cergy Paris University and the Learning Planet Institute.

Hosted on the campus of the Learning Planet Institute, in Paris, the UR LT aims to develop scientific theories, methods, and tools rooted in interdisciplinarity, citizen sciences, collective intelligence, and Artificial Intelligence (AI), with the goal of advancing systemic approaches to planetary transitions.

The UR LT is designed to welcome researchers for a given period, in order to initiate interdisciplinary research projects with other researchers who share similar interests in the field of transitions.
