A Gateway to Global Education Innovation
We are a not-for-profit (NPO) dedicated to cultivating education innovation in Japan and abroad by serving as a gateway between cultures and working with partners to apply cutting edge solutions to modern education challenges.
Dedicated to the Future of Education
The Japanese Ministry of Education (MEXT) recently launched an ambitious reform agenda aimed at developing a new generation of future-ready, globally minded Japanese learners. Our mission is to serve as a key driver of this and other education innovation initiatives in order to support future leaders who are equipped to build a more sustainable, equitable, peaceful, and prosperous future for Japan and the world.
What We Do
CFI collaborates with a wide variety of public and private institutions in order to advance the Japanese and global education innovation agenda, facilitate beneficial cross-border partnerships, and improve student outcomes via innovative education practice and education technology.
We explore critical issues in global education and apply cutting edge research and experimentation in order to push the boundaries of traditional practice.
Leveraging our wide network of international partners, we make the connections that make education innovation happen.
Students are at the center of our mission. We bring opportunity to their doorstep with the help of our partners and ensure student voices are a part of global education innovation discourse.
The future is digital. We bring technology solutions to education challenges : on campus or in the cloud.
In early 2020, the global coronavirus pandemic rocked the world—and the arc of the online learning trend bent in heretofore unimaginable ways.
