DELILAH aimed at deepening understanding of educational innovations and, on the basis of such an understanding, gathering empirical evidence of innovative education and learning arrangements and developing specific methodologies and guidelines for learning. In other words, the DELILAH project sought to achieve a threefold aim, namely: [1] to develop a new approach to �innovations in education and training�; [2] to carry out research on �innovations in four education and training sectors� on the basis of such an approach; and [3] to draw from the research results and approach policy implications and recommendations for action in the form of guidelines.
The approach developed by the project was constituted around a specific view of innovations in education and training based on the idea of learning patrimony and the impact upon the latter of a set of social, cultural and above all political and economic factors.
