Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2010
This description of François Taddéi's work was prepared when François Taddéi was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2010.
François Taddéi is breaking away from the elitist, top-down, and conservative model of the French education system that fails to prepare students to innovate and meet the complex challenges of a changing world. François is reinventing high school and college science education and laying the ground for a renewed, democratized knowledge industry. His integrated model marries a variety of disciplines, taps into private investments, and attracts the most motivated students who acquire, invent, and apply knowledge directly to groundbreaking projects. This research-based architecture is inspiring institutions across the French system and influencing education internationally.
