Insper’s endowed chairs draw on donations from its partners and friends to support research conducted by prominent academics. Their studies are translated into public policies and applied knowledge that are debated and shared with society. Four projects currently symbolize this partnership between Insper and private organizations: IFB (education, labor market, health, socioenvironmental impact, etc.), Instituto Ayrton Senna (public policies for education managers), Instituto Unibanco (quality of secondary education), Instituto Palavra Aberta (political freedom and freedom of speech); and Instituto Escolhas (economics and the environment). We also have an endowed chair dedicated exclusively to research and teaching in the field of business administration, the Chafi Haddad Chair. In the same field, we have as well a chair dedicated to research on scale-up companies, the Endeavor Chair.
