Connecting the EdTech Research Ecosystem (CERES)

The Connecting the EdTech Research EcoSystem (CERES) is a network of researchers, students, industry leaders, and community partners with the shared passion to help improve the educational outcomes and well-being of children around the globe through innovative accessible technology. The CERES network, in conjunction with the Jacobs Foundation, will ensure that the next generation of scientists and leaders in the broad areas of educational and child-focused technology will know how to work together on compelling research and by engaging with our industry partners ensure that this research helps transform diverse communities. We create opportunities for collaboration between all stakeholders to move the science forward quickly and impactfully.

Our research builds capacity to support translational science that not only moves the field forward but speaks to the real needs and priorities of corporate, start-up, non-profit, and governmental agencies.

Our training builds capacity to support reproducible and robust science and innovative solutions for the thorny challenges of the current and future global context.

Our collaboration works across disciplinary and organizational boundaries, this network is shaping the next phase of research, innovation, and evidence-based commercial products in this space.
