coming from our clients

“ERI’s work has enabled us for the first time to draw up a map of the factors that impact social mobility and of the links between them. Thanks to its groundbreaking research and in-depth understanding of our practical needs, our ability to strategically plan investments aimed at narrowing socioeconomic gaps in Israel has dramatically improved.”

Michal Cohen CEO Rashi Foundation

“After a series of impressive studies carried out for the ministry and partners, I was very pleased to have the opportunity to work with ERI on building the 2030 Image of the Graduate – a flagship project of the Strategy Division and of the Ministry of Education as a whole for years to come. ERI’s brilliant and highly professional work has enabled us to produce an agreed-upon basis for the planning and assimilation of 21st-century skills in the education system.”

Dr. Michal Tabibian Mizrahi Director of Strategy and Planning, Ministry of Education

“Over the past five years, ERI has conducted a series of studies for us, ranging from a formative evaluative study of the Ministry of Welfare’s flagship program to address poverty, “Noshmim Le-Revaha,” through comprehensive research on social mobility, to exceptional applied research on resilience factors among families. The study included an in-depth research to support strategic planning of interventions to increase family’s resilience as well as a diagnostic tool for use on the field level, which accentuates its unique added value.”
