CERI is the Centre for Educational Research and Innovation, a major division of the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) Directorate for Education . CERI was set up in 1968 as an independently funded programme by member countries and other organisations. CERI
has established an international reputation for pioneering educational
research, opening up new fields for exploration and combining rigorous
analysis with conceptual innovation.
CERI’s work covers learning at every age, from birth to old age. It
goes beyond the formal education system. CERI has a particular concern
with emerging trends and issues, futures thinking in schools and
universities; often has a longer timeframe than most work, typically aiming to set an agenda for the next 5-10 years orlonger. CERI's goal is to ensure that the futures work is thoroughly integrated with empirical analysis. We also put specific emphasis on accumulating evidence on the value and quality of futures work.
