The FEDE Research Institute


The FEDE Research Institute is the research laboratory of the Federation for Education in Europe / Fédération Européenne des Ecoles.  It brings together an international community of nearly 1000 doctors, experts in their fields, renowned by academics that come to convey their knowledge in FEDE schools and throughout the world

The FEDE Research Institute, dedicated to the science of education and the problematic of professionalization and new occupations, has as its objective, to become the most important research laboratory in Europe. It expects to show that thinking helps companies to innovate, to transform and to gain efficiency and effectiveness.

With its research and proximity to the world of business, The FEDE Research Institute brings a new look, to European managerial practices; a more global look on a worldwide scale:
– by opening an area of the questioning of managerial practices,
– by treating themes such as risk taking, confidence or more so, the contribution of younger generations,
– by giving merit to research addressing the impact of societal transformations on the management of organizations,
– and by exploring the questions that emerge in an innovative context of transition and transformation.

To invent new managerial practices, to think of tomorrow’s societies, and to build new economic models, is to be capable of understanding the problems of today relative to human resources, ongoing training and even to the sociological view of the science of education and management.

The FEDE Research Institute:

–    hosts a network of international doctors,
–    organizes study days and seminars
