IFI - Innovative Finance Inclusion in Academia and Field 



IFI has been selected for EU co-funding by the EACEA (Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency) as an Erasmus+ programme for capacity building in higher education.

IFI Project aims to systematically align the Israeli higher education system with global changes and develop new capacities for inclusive social finance on three levels: (a) Eco-system & Infrastructure, (b) Academy-Industry Cooperation, (c) Research, Teaching & Training.

IFI project aspires to support the refreshing (however, still rare) academic research on sustainable finance with teaching, education, and entrepreneurship actions. It is accomplished through training sessions, education programs, designed innovative sustainable finance investments fund, and mostly through mapping the field in Israel and Europe, to identify relevant stakeholders, change agents and community of practice in the Sustainable Finance (SF) field.

IFI brings an interdisciplinary approach, stressing shifting focus is needed not only in finance but also in economics, law, technology, design and education.

Gathering European and Israeli experts, the project acts as a platform to foster integrated community and cultivating evidence-based standards and practices, building a scope of knowledge and case studies, training investors, regulators and innovators, letting students practice ESG (Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance) investments, and encourage innovation. All practices are key components of a thriving sustainable finance ecosystem and HEIs (Higher Education Institutions) capacity building. IFI is the first national consortium created explicitly to provide infrastructure, knowledge and innovation to further develop the sustainable and inclusive finance ecosystem in HEIs and field.

Higher Education Institution for Societal Engagement

The HEISE project, co-financed by Erasmus+ programme supports synergy between education, research and innovation activities. In this project we will approach the phenomena of societal impact from various perspectives - entrepreneurial, management, social sciences and policy and focus on artistic, art based and qualitative methods. For example, omitting the role of managers attitude towards diversity and social responsibility both in stakeholders organizations (e.g art organizations, cities, business) and in HEI would reduce the outcomes of the project. In addition, entrepreneurship is seen as a tool for integration for example for immigrants, as statistics show that they seem to become entrepreneurs more often than the local inhabitants – either by choice or non-choice. Thus, the project aims to create an innovative and attractive educational model based on experiential and challenge led learning. The innovation lies in engaging the owners of challenges and the students into joint teams and to use arts-based methods to understand the different point of views in solving the challenges.
