Two H2020 research and innovation actions have started

These projects are granted under the topic: Enhancing access and uptake of education to reverse inequalities

The Inclusion4Schools (School-Community Partnership for Reversing Inequality And Exclusion: Transformative Practises of Segregated Schools) coordinating & support action (CSA) aims to foster and promote pedagogical relations of inclusion, a culture of dialogue, and the transformation of unjust structures through education in contrast to the power-relations of exclusion, the culture of silence, and the reproduction of unjust structures. Our project – started in November 2020 – runs in parallel with two Horizon2020 Research and Innovation Actions (RIA) under the same topic. We will interact with them to enhance synergies and cooperation between them and amongst the relevant stakeholders (including policy makers at all levels in the relevant policy fields) and decisively promote the policy uptake of the research to overcome inequalities. We will jointly generate networks for research and policy development and promote and monitor concrete policy guidance for system-wide, integrated and cross-policy strategies for effective intervention.

The two RIA projects that were launched this week on the 1st of March 2021are the following:

  1. Pioneering policies and practices tackling educational inequalities in Europe (PIONEERED)
  2. Educational Common Spaces. Passing through enclosures and reversing inequalities (SMOOTH)
