INCLUD-ED Project Final conference

6 December 2011, European Parliament, Brussels, Belgium

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

In today’s knowledge society, education can act as a powerful resource to achieve the European goal of social cohesion. Similarly to the field of medicine in which only those treatments that have been proven to be effective when curing a particular disease are implemented, there is a need to identify those educational and social actions that research has shown can reverse social and educational exclusion. In the last 5 years, INCLUD-ED Project researchers have gathered evidences that demonstrate which are the actions that overcome inequalities. They will be presented in the Final INCLUD-ED Conference.


European Gender Summit - Quality research and innovation through equality

8-9 November 2011, Brussels

Knowledge and innovation are key drivers for sustainable growth and prosperity in Europe. Extensive research has demonstrated that the quality of research and development benefits significantly from adding gender as a critical success factor. The first European Gender Summit will network key players from all sectors to initiate the much-needed changes in the culture of research and innovation.

Joint discussions will produce the first ever collective agreement on policy development on gender for innovation, the policy manifesto on "Integrated Action on the Gender Dimension in Research."
