During these two days, other researchers from the network participated. The scientific meeting was opened by the Vice Rector of International Relations of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and the Director of the Department of Sociology of the same university. In the third phase of the project, called "Innovation", a period of reflection is opened on the analysis of innovative policies to counteract social inequalities. Using the intellectual capital of the network and the research that has been carried out through the analysis of the theoretical aspects of the AMOSIT model, it is proposed to develop innovative methodologies with a mixed methods research design that articulates qualitative and quantitative techniques. INCASI exhibition at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona The Second Global Meeting of the project coincided with the second INCASI Exhibition, held for the second year in a row at the Social Sciences Library of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, between February 20 and March 20, 2018. This year the exhibition focused on the construction of the AMOSIT model, in which, based on the contribution of the different groups of the INCASI network, it is a matter of agreeing and defining a common research perspective in accordance with the proposal of the AMOSIT analysis model. It seeks to establish the main theoretical and conceptual aspects on which to articulate research in the network. In the context of the INCASI Exposition, on February 27 a presentation was given of the books by Ildefonso Marqués-Perales, "Social mobility in Spain", and José Saturnino Martínez García, "Equity and education", Principal Responsible Researchers of the INCASI network by the University of Seville and the University of La Laguna, respectively.
