To take a look over the fence of regional and national particularities offers the opportunity to enlarge one’s own patterns of perception of reality.
Therefore, regional and transnational networks are an essential part of IRIS’ approach to both research and practice development.
IRIS is coordinating the activities of EGRIS- the European Group for Integrated Social Research. EGRIS is a European research network with partners in Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Irland, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Spain, the UK, and Germany. Main research topics of EGRIS are the changing social structures and processes of social integration in the context of new trajectories between youth and adulthood and their consequences for the educational and the welfare system.
For a comprehensive list of cooperation partners IRIS is maintaining, please thave a look at the section “Partners“.
