emlyon business school has launched the Artificial Intelligence in Management (AIM) Institute, a multifaceted initiative focused on understanding the opportunities and implications of artificial intelligence for the management of organizations, industries, and business ecosystems.

Renaud Champion, AIM Executive Director, explains the idea behind the AIM Institute,

“AI is already changing the way we live and work. It’s having a profound effect on every area of business – from work and human resources, to governance and even business models. The AIM Institute will explore what impact AI is having and produce a rich seam of knowledge and applied solutions – on an unprecedented scale – to help business leaders navigate through these turbulent times.”

The AIM Institute has three priorities:

  1. Research
  2. Innovation, and
  3. Dissemination. 

Research is the foundation of the institute’s work, carried out by two social science research centers:

The first, AIM Research Center for Work and Organization directed by Professor Ruthanne Huising, examines the implications of AI for work, labor markets, and organizational design and governance.

Professor Ruthanne Huising, AIM Research Director, explains,

“There are many predictions about how AI will change the way we work and organize but relatively few empirical studies. The goal of the AIM Research Center is to support grounded, empirical studies of the way technology is changing, what it means to work and the way work is organized, done, and rewarded. Around any restructuring of work, we want to understand the implications for organizing and governing.”

The second, directed by Professor Margherita Pagani, examines how AI is affecting value creation and fostering the emergence of new business models.

Professor Margherita Pagani, AIM Research Director, outlines,

“The researchers involved in the AIM Research Center on AI in Value Creation want to analyze the impact of AI on a broad range of business and management subjects and offer guidance to organizations on how to use AI for sustainable value creation"

The two centres will initiate and support research that addresses real-world issues facing organizations. The Research Centers are governed by a Scientific Committee made up of leading academics from Stanford, EPFL, UT Austin, VU Amsterdam, Florida State University and University of Southern California. 

Innovation is the process of turning research into practical solutions and applications for teaching, learning and business. The institute, working in symbiosis with emlyon business school, will build on its research work to develop training modules and qualifications that will be embedded in the school’s curriculum.

 The institute will also systematically explore ways to transfer the fruits of its research to the world of business.

Renaud Champion adds,

“For every research project, we consider whether the work has the potential to contribute to our understanding of how organizations and institutions can take meaningful and responsible advantage of AI. When we encounter projects that have concrete business applications, we might develop patentable models that could be coded and used to develop an application that a partner business might find useful. Or, we may explore the possibility of launching and supporting a start-up to exploit this innovation.”

Dissemination is an important part of the AIM Institute’s work, sharing the outputs of its research work with three target audiences:

  1. - emlyon business school students, so they are ready to embrace AI in their future roles as business leaders,
  2. - the general public, to educate them about what AI really entails and to dispel inaccurate and sometimes alarming myths and untruths,
  3. - local, national and international institutions, to provide technical and ethical guidance that will help to frame public debate.

We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.


FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
