Policy and research
We believe research is crucial in transforming the international understanding of education in countries across Asia. Our body of research includes data from numerous countries throughout the region, including from South Korea, Japan, China, and India.
We also bring together groups of like-minded people, from top leaders and thinkers represented in our Atlantis Group to our Global Teacher Prize Ambassador community, to effect change throughout the education system.
Through our Challenge Fund, we supported early-stage ideas that have big potential to change the future of education. In Asia, this included Bridging Education and Mobility China, which aims to revolutionise rural Chinese education by launching a teacher development network that focuses on problem-based learning practices.
