RESL.EU: Reducing Early School Leaving in the EU

Duration: 
February, 2012 to January, 2018
Funding: 
EU FP7 - Collaborative Project

The RESL.eu project is positioned within the broad topic of Education systems in the 21st century by systematically studying from different angles the issue of early school/training leaving (ESL) in nine European countries, selected for their specific and relevant profiles with respect to this issue (Belgium, United Kingdom, Sweden, Portugal, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Austria and Hungary). The rationale behind this approach is the belief that the high rate of ESL in the EU is a symptom of the traditional education system’s inability to adapt to these new realities.
