The CRI

The Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI) experiments and spreads new ways of learning, teaching, conducting research and mobilizing collective intelligence in life, learning and digital sciences.

The CRI was founded in 2005 by François Taddei and Ariel Lindner.

The Bettencourt Schueller Foundation has been an essential and key supporting partner since the CRI was created.

The CRI develops educational programs together with the Sorbonne Paris Cité University (Paris Descartes University and Paris Diderot University). 

A wide range of partners accompany the CRI including the European fund, “Les Programmes d’Investissements d’Avenir” and town council of Paris who provided us with a building in the heart of Paris. 

CRI Research is run in partnership with INSERM and Paris Descartes University.
