4th meeting of the SCIREARLY Project Consortium

On May 13 and 14, the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Porto and the Centre for Educational Research and Intervention (CIIE) hosted the 4th meeting of the SCIREARLY Project Consortium.

This project, funded by the European Commission through the Horizon Europe Programme (grant no. 101061288), will run until 31 October 2025 and seeks to identify, systematise and replicate successful policies and practices based on scientific research that will reduce failure and early school leaving (ESL) for everyone, including those in the most vulnerable situations. 

At this meeting it was possible to discuss ways of increasing the social impact of the results already obtained, as well as to prepare the next steps in the research which, also based on a dialogical approach, will seek to promote the co-creation of knowledge, solutions and recommendations with educators/teachers, students, families and political decision-makers. 

The meeting was attended by representatives of the 10 partners that make up the Consortium led by the University of Deusto, Spain (Coord. ) and which includes, in addition to the University of Porto, the University of Helsinki (Finland), Dublin City University (Ireland), the University of Malta, Newcastle University (United Kingdom), the MHPSS Collaborative - Red Barnet (Denmark), the Portuguese Ministry of Education and Science, the European Centre for Studies and Initiatives (CESIE, Italy), the European Parents Association (EPA, Belgium) and the Centre for Social Action and Innovation (KMOP, Greece).

The Portuguese team is made up of CIIE researchers Pedro Ferreira (IR), Isabel Menezes (IR), Eunice Macedo, Henrique Vaz, Sara Pinheiro, Sofia C. Pais, André Barros and Carmo Gouveia.
