CIIE is now the IFE Conference

The IFE Conference, formerly known as CIIE, is a space that will allow you to be part of the trends and practices that are revolutionizing the world of education.

The International Conference of Educational Innovation (#CIIETec) was born in 2006 to support innovative people in improving education. Looking towards the future, we know that education must evolve to meet the needs of our economies and societies. With this in mind, CIIE is evolving to reach new horizons.

IFE Conference, created by the Institute for the Future of Education at Tecnológico de Monterrey, and named after it, will continue the trajectory of CIIE, providing an international educational innovation event every year to continue driving the future of education.
