ECONOFIDES: Economics for High school offers fun, educational micro-learning platforms and interactive e-books to give a taste for economics to students, all the way from 10th to 12th grade. Econofides content is inspired by COREecon, an international, collaborative project has has revolutionized the teaching of economics by getting into the big issues facing modern-day society and is currently being taught in many of the best universities around the world.

COREecon materials have been adapted to the high school curricula in a digitized, accessible format by a team of CORE and Sciences Po researchers in collaboration with the Académie de Versailles (one of the largest and most diverse school regions in France), the Artips platform and the Île de France Region. Econofides proposes the teaching of economics with the following resources:

  • A micro-learning course for 10th graders
  • Interactive e-books for:
    • 11th graders studying Social and Economic Sciences (SES)
    • 11th graders studying Science and Technology for Administration and Management (STMG)
    • 12th graders studying Economics (ES)
  • A micro-learning course for all high school students designed to sensitize them to economics and related issues


Financial support for the development of these materials was provided by the Académie de Versailles, the Bank of France, the AXA Research Fund, the Île de France Region and Sciences Po.

Econofides is being carried out under the scientific direction of Yann Algan, Dean of the School of Public Affairs and Professor of Economics at Sciences Po, along with the partners presented below.
