About Us

"Nothing broadens the mind like travel" - Emile Zola, 1864

IERF (European Research and Training Institute) is an accredited, non-profit, life-long learning organisation. It was created in Paris, in 1994, with two primary objectives. First, to define and create international work experience opportunities that enhance the employability of young people, adults and recent graduates; second, to help develop innovative ways to support employment, notably by building career guidance and methodologies for the valorisation and capitalisation of the benefits of transnational mobility.

Every year, IERF supports more than 300 beneficiaries in the construction of their international mobility project, either as certified promotor of the Erasmus+ programme and as partner of French public authorities and international organizations.

IERF has sponsored or partnered various comparative transnational research initiatives, to integrate developing Europe-wide life-long learning objectives and develop innovative pedagogical engineering programme.
