CPS Joins Overcoming Inequalities in Schools and Learning Communities: Innovative Education for a New Century Staff Exchange Program

Co-directors of CEU’s Center for Policy Studies Viola Zentai and Andrew Cartwright have joined the  international research network Overcoming Inequalities in Schools and Learning Communities: Innovative Education for a New Century (SALEACOM). SALECOM aims to address educational and social exclusion in schools and learning communities through a number of academic exchanges. The project activities will be implemented in 36 months with a total € 391,500 funding from the European Commission's H2020 Programme.

SALEACOM seeks to create an International Research Network that has the following aims:

- to increase worldwide cooperation in the study of successful actions with children and youth systematically underserved

- to provide high-quality training programs for teachers and educational researchers aiming at overcoming inequalities

- to develop interdisciplinary solutions for and with learners most heavily affected by inequalities, including access and quality of higher education

- to design strengths-based methodologies for international comparative research to further the impact of research on the lives of students who have been historically excluded

- to create a global program of successful educational actions to be implemented across educational systems.

A number of CEU academic staff will take part in month-long exchange visits to collaborate with higher education institutions in Australia, Brazil, New Zealand, Hungary, Spain, USA and one non-academic institution (Drom Kotar Mestipen) in Spain.
