The Future of Education Consortium

The Future of Education Consortium brings together public and private sector organisations from the UK and across Europe who are passionate about transforming education by incorporating cutting-edge technologies.

The global Education Technology (EdTech) market was valued at $227 billion with immense potential for growth: Projections show that from 2022 to 2030, this market is expected to experience an annual growth rate of 16.5%, which could lead to a 2.5-fold expansion from 2019 to 2025. By 2025, the market is estimated to reach a value of $404 billion.

These advancements bring about great opportunities to foster inclusive, interactive, and personalised teaching experiences. While the potential of EdTech solutions is undeniable, there are numerous hurdles and risks that need to be considered within a sector developing as rapidly as the education sector.

We must face these challenges to revolutionise education. However, we firmly believe that we must not face them alone.

By participating in our Consortium, you will have the opportunity to exchange insights, explore the potential of EdTech solutions, and collaborate with forward-thinking individuals and organisations who are dedicated to transforming education.

You will gain access to our extensive network at the University of Cambridge, as well as across the UK, and throughout Europe, providing you with a platform to engage with like-minded professionals and build lasting partnerships.

The Future of Education Consortium is hosted by the renowned Centre for Business Innovation (CfBI) and powered by European Diplomats.

The CfBI has an extensive track record of managing collaborative consortia. This draws primarily on the ‘Collaborative Advantage’ formula which was created by the CfBI team at the Centre for Exploitation of Science and Technology in the 1990’s.

Consortia have been run over the last 20 years by CfBI team members.
