The ambition of the Fibonacci project is to contribute to the disseminaion of IBSME throughout the European Union. The European countries should be enabled to understand and implement the ideas of IBSME in a way that fits their own specificities.

The Fibonacci project defines a dissemination process starting with 12 Reference Centres and 24 Twin Centres.

The Fibonacci project started on January 1, 2010 for a duration of 38 months. It is coordinated by the École normale supérieure (France) with a shared scientific coordination with Bayreuth Univer­sity (Germany). The Consortium includes 25 members from 21 countries with endorsement from major scientific institutions such as Academies of Sciences.

This section presents the key components and principles of the project.
