Innovation Strategy for Education and Training





The CERI Innovation Strategy for Education and Training team explores new approaches to equip people with the skills required for innovation and to support radical innovation and continuous improvement in education systems.



Innovation is a driver of growth and wellbeing. Creating an innovation-friendly ecosystem in education is key to the continuous improvement of education. It includes nurturing people’s innovation skills and ensuring that the main drivers of innovation remain active: namely, individual, organisational and system learning.
