# About Open FIESTA
Open FIESTA（Open Faculty for Innovation, Education, Science, Technology and Art）is co-established by Tsinghua University and the Center for Research and Interdisciplinary (CRI), Paris Descartes University in May, 2015. Open FIESTA aims to integrate the global innovation resources, collectively study, develop and share exponential technologies and disruptive paradigms to catalyze global innovation for sustainability, and nurture the students with creative spirit, entrepreneurial capability and strong social responsibility.
As well stated in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, the world is facing unprecedented fast-growing challenges, including multi-faceted economic, social, climatic and environmental crises. To be able to train our next generation to be innovative problem solvers, it will thus require new programs where they can learn through research not only how to access the precious knowledge produced by their elders, but also to create a new one. They should also learn meta-skills such as learning how to learn, to criticize constructively, synthesize or recombine ideas, to be creative, to collaborate with people that come to different backgrounds and cultures for innovation.
Top universities of today have to evolve with redefined strategies to adapt to this urgent need for higher education in the 21st century.
Open FIESTA is aiming to build a Global hub and a worldwide network to foster next generation research, education and innovation at Tsinghua University, which is dedicated to: Prototyping a new model of a university for the 21st century;
- Cultivating the next generation change makers;
- Building a worldwide open community for interdisciplinary discovery and innovation;
- Exploring the solutions for sustainable development and innovation.
