Since January 2010 IRIS is part of the European research project “Governance of Educational Trajectories in Europe. Access, coping and relevance of education for young people in European knowledge societies in comparative perspective (GOETE)”.
There are 13 partner institutes from 8 European countries involved (Germany, Finland, France, UK, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, and Slovenia). The multidisciplinary consortium brings together researchers from such diverse areas as social education, educational science, comparative educational science, policy studies, sociology, social work and economics.
The project is funded for three years by the European Commission’s 7th framework programme for research. It is coordinated by Dr. Andreas Walther, Institute of Educational Science, University of Tübingen.
