Equal Educational Opportunities for All: New EU Project PIONEERED Kicks Off Activities

International research consortium strives to reduce educational inequalities in Europe by determining evidence-based policies and identifying pioneering measures

A good education provides access to the labour market, offers the chance of political participation and improves overall well-being, health and life expectancy. However, educational inequalities – i. e. disadvantages in access to and uptake of education – remain deeply ingrained into European education systems. The new research project PIONEERED strives to promote educational equality in Europe by providing research-informed policy recommendations and identifying pioneering policies and practices to enhance access to, uptake and completion of education. Over the next four years, PIONEERED will receive 3.5 Mio € in funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.


The PIONEERED project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101004392.
