TEDMEM contributes to the enhancement of the education system and the promotion of equal educational opportunities through its research endeavors.

The primary objective of TEDMEM is to contribute to a more prosperous future for all children within the nation. Prioritizing the implementation of education policies aimed at enabling children to realize their potential regardless of their circumstances into which they are born, stands at the forefront of TEDMEM's agenda.

TEDMEM adopts supra-political approach when addressing education-related matters. Embracing the principle of evidence-based decision-making in educational policy, TEDMEM endeavors to bridge the gap between knowledge and policy for the public good, aspiring to be the nation's most reliable authority in analyzing education policies.

Diverging from conventional paradigms in educational policymaking, TEDMEM’s focus extends beyond the issues currently on the education system's agenda, encompassing issues that merit attention and should be on the agenda. TEDMEM embraces a forward-looking perspective that integrates future with present and international trends with our cultural heritage.

What is MEM? As a non-governmental organization, TEDMEM recognizes the importance of being productive, innovative, and impactful. The concept of MEM, which stands for the social and cultural equivalent of the gene, embodies the codes and units containing information about social and cultural life.
