CRI[1] is co-constructing and sharing new ways of learning, teaching, conducting research and mobilizing collective intelligence in the fields of life, learning and digital sciences, in order to face the world's sustainable development goals (SDGs)[2].

CRI develops and hosts educational programs, from preschool to high school (Savanturiers - Ecole de la Recherche), and interdisciplinary Bachelor, Master, PhD as well as lifelong learning programs, of the Université de Paris.

At the heart of CRI are an INSERM[3]-Université de Paris[4] research Collaboratory Unit and an innovative maker and digital labs.

CRI is at the origin of the #LearningPlanet initiative in partnership with AFD[5] and UNESCO[6], of which it also holds a Chair. #LearningPlanet's mission is to inspire and support learners of all ages who wish to make a commitment to their communities and the planet, and to meet the Sustainable Development Goals defined by the UN to contribute to a better future.

CRI was founded in 2006 by François Taddei and Ariel Lindner, both researchers at the Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale.[7]
