Learn. Communicate. Inspire.

26-27 september
International trade center (Moscow)

As life changes so does education and the attitude towards it. The development of information technologies: e-learning, network platforms, big data and artificial intelligence are taking education to a new level. #EdCrunch is collecting the best cases from all over the world so that you start creating education of the future right away.

Who is it for?

The conference will be interesting for everyone who wants to know more about innovations in education. We welcome representatives of the professional educational community (teachers, instructors, heads of educational institutions and corporate universities, educational department representatives) as well as philanthropists, founders of charity funds, investors and educational startups.

What is notable about #EDCRUNCH?

Amazing speakers and heated discussions, enriching case studies and new acquaintances, live talks with experts and informal communication with fellow-thinkers.

Main topic of #EDCRUNCH 2017:

Education 3.0. Customization and Personalization Technologies.

Personalized teaching is one of the most widely discussed and popular teaching methods at any stage of education. The effectiveness of its application, however, depends not only on technological capabilities but also on teachers’ competencies and their willingness to move forward.

Why should you visit the conference?

The goal of #EdCrunch is to look into the future and see what education will be like 5-10 years from today. In order for that to happen we bring together those people who are changing the educational landscape right now.

We will help you to take a glance at the world educational kitchen so that you can see the most innovative schools and understand why the rankings of Finland in the educational rating are growing year after year, find out what the state-of-the-art universities are doing and how global companies train their employees.

We believe that it will help you create your own best recipe of future education.

Where else besides Moscow?
