Research in relation to education challenges in Europe is an integral part of the European Union�s programme of research in the social sciences and the humanities.
In the Fourth and the Fifth EU Framework Programmes, the Directorate-General for Research (DGResearch) of the European Commission supported a significant number of research projects and thematic networks that address directly issues of education and training. These collaborative endeavours many of them currently in progress- involve more than 420 research teams across and beyond the EU. They have produced important insights for a range of policies and have laid the foundations for significant research cooperation across Europe in this field.
The projects address a wide range of issues that include: the challenges for future education and training policies in Europe; the dynamics of education and employment; issues of teacher education; issues of higher education; the use of ICTs in learning; issues of education for citizenship; issues of education and social exclusion; lifelong learning strategies; issues of competence development and learning in organisations; innovative pedagogies and school improvement.
