The “Future Challenges to Education Systems in Central Eastern European Context” (EDUC) is an OSF/ESP funded two year comparative research project aiming at assessing the ability of the education systems of five Central-Eastern European countries to adapt to various ongoing changes, such as technological changes and their impact on labor markets, demographic changes (ageing, migration, etc.), populist politics and autocratic governance, old and new inequalities, changing gender roles and globalization.  The research will focus on the adaptability of education systems determined by the interplay between governance and the institutional operation of schools in Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Serbia and Romania. The research is based on writing country case studies, thematic comparative papers and on comparative statistical analysis.
