Education is the key to our future
International research for innovative, accessible, useful education

Who we are

A non-profit research organization founded in Assisi in 2000 by Patrizio Paoletti and a group of researchers, pedagogists, psychologists, sociologists, doctors and entrepreneurs. The Foundation carries out its research programs and pedagogical projects thanks to the support of over 100,000 people in order to achieve a single goal: to allow people to get in touch with their immense potential.

What we do

For over twenty years, the Foundation has been studying human functioning through interdisciplinary research: neuroscientific, psychological, educational, didactic and social. The results of the neuroscientific research together with the most up-to-date knowledge on human functioning, are applied immediately in education and teaching, to promote the best talents in children and adults.

What they say about us

Education is a treasure: educating ourselves to educate others, to live an oriented and orienting life, to produce a true and continuous improvement
