Mission

Applied Innovation for New Governance

The Institute for Development in Economics and Administration (IDEA International) was founded by Dr. Frederic Martin and Dr. Sylvain Lariviere in Quebec (Canada) in 1997. Since its creation, IDEA has pursued its mission to contribute to the emergence of an efficient public sector by helping governments, both at central and decentralized levels, with applied innovation for new governance.

IDEA is now an international network which offers a range of consulting services, training programs and decision support systems.

The pursuit of its mission relies on a set of institutional values shared by all members of the organization. "Collaboration with renowned institutions, the development of sustainable partnerships, the quality of our human resources and services, and respect for the client and his know-how are our raison d’être.”

The quality of our services is recognized by the ISO 9001-2008 Certification and the PMI Registered Education Provider Certification of IDEA Head Office in Canada.
