Welcome to the website dedicated to Franck Biancheri

October 30, 2012, Franck Biancheri died of a long illness at the age of 51, leaving behind him an immense work of European political scientist, not only as a thinker, researcher and poser of ideas and methods -such as that of political anticipation in particular- with “Europe”, or more exactly the “Europeans” at the heart … but also as an actor with the multiplicity of new projects initiated under his impetus… We let you discover here his career, all his initiatives and also some of the fundamentals of his work.

LEAP2040 Event ! UNESCO Futures Literacy Summit: Business School of the future – 11/12/2020 at 6.00 pm

LEAP2040 and  INSEEC will hold their next “Café du Futur” meeting in the famous frame of the Futures Literacy Summit of the UNESCO on the topic: “Business School 2030 – The world is changing, Business Schools are adapting”

NSEEC-Futur is a project of “collective intelligence of the future” of the teachers’ college. Every month, the Cafés du futur question the future: societal transformations, impact on education, the need to adapt, recommendations, etc…

It is to one of these Cafés that we invite you. As part of an exercise in collective intelligence to reinvent the specific missions of business schools, we invite you to help us better understand the major axes of economic transformation, to reflect on the added value of human beings in these new economic models, to play at proposing an “ideal program” for business schools by 2030.
