Pioneering Policies & Practices

The PIONEERED project is designed to provide research-informed policy measures and identify pioneering policies and practices to enhance access to, uptake and completion of education both in formal and informal educational settings.

This involves:

a) mapping emerging and existing sources of educational inequalities over the course of educational careers from early childhood to tertiary education

b) mapping responses to inequalities as pioneering policies and practices from a comparative perspective

c) synthesising the findings and identifying the most promising tools, pioneering policies and practices within and across European countries

The overarching aim is to address some of the pressing societal challenges taken up in the Horizon 2020 framework and inform a new generation of policies and practice that can efficiently tackle and mitigate forms of inequalities in education in Europe.


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