IRDNA, French acronym for Research and Development Institute of Applied Neurosciences, is an independent non-profit think-tank organisation.
IRDNA's mission is to find supplementary or alternative ways of training and educating children not suited to the standard educational system.
Those children, typically suffering from attention disorders, dysorthography, dyscalculia, hyperactivity, dyslexia, autism as well as those over gifted, too often struggle and suffer along a path designed for the majority.
The IRDNA scientists and researchers' goal is to awaken the exceptionality in each one through the use of innovative technologies such as virtual and augmented reality, big data and gamification; to develop the potentials that every child, every human being has got inside.
Operations have already been started in France, Romania, Brazil, the Ivory Coast, Senegal and Spain.
IRDNA is now looking to expand its network worldwide; not only to address local educational needs, but also to contract the best experts in pedagogy and neuroscience to accelerate the finding of innovative solutions.
VC-A has decided to contribute to IRDNA humanist mission and hopes that our VC-A Members will be willing to assist and contribute to IRDNA's mission.
What is required: outstanding challenges, regional non-profit organisations dedicated to education, regional neuroscientists and experts in pedagogy, regional, national or international subventions, any form of local support to cover working capital requirements and the acquisition or renting of fixed assets such as hardware, software and offices.
