About us

We are the first Education Research and Innovation Laboratory for Latin America and the Caribbean. We were created in 2016 by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and Fundación Chile, with the support of the Education Ministries of Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay.

Our Work

We work on three strategic pillars that allow the promotion, development and spread of cutting-edge research aimed to address the main challenges in the region and promoting shared work agendas; fostering innovation in education policies and practices to provide solutions for the main education problems in the region; and advance collaborative networks that allow the exchange between policy makers, researchers, innovators and the school community.
