“Learning Locally”-Studies published

Written by AP on . Posted in News from the Institute

It’s the aim of the project “Learning Locally”, to represent the educational landscape of the Rems-Murr-Kreis in a transparent way, to clarify responsibilities, to gather offers and educational institutions, and to coordinate, to network and to facilitate access. IRIS e.V., it covers two areas of the educational landscape in the Rems-Murr-Kreis. These first one is the non-formal and informal education programs in the specific structure of the associational youth work and the second one covers the structures and deals of continuing vocational training in the Rems-Murr-Kreis.

The results of these studies have now been published: see page on the reports

Open Access Strategy

Written by AP on . Posted in Website-News

IRIS now pursues a clear open access strategy. I.e. all papers published by IRIS staff will be freely available.

According to estimates, the state supports the science and research with about 12 billion euros. The results of the research, however, appear mainly in expensive journals. For these public libraries, students and researchers have to spend much. So the state pays a second time for the results of the research financed by it.

As a substantially publicly funded institution IRIS e.V. decided to publish research results funded by public money within the meaning of the open access strategy.
For more information on Open Access Strategy go to “Aktionbündnis “Urheberrecht für Bildung und Wissenschaft”. An overview of previously published Open Access publications from IRIS is updated constantly.

IRIS Newsletter 1/2007 published

IRIS Newsletter 1/2007 published
Youth and Participation is the topic of the latest IRIS Newsletter. Participation of chidren and young people has become the number one topic in youth policies. But, what does it mean? Who is participating in what? Does participation make a difference with regard to social integration or is it just a cover-up of the exclusion of young people from decisions that concern them? The new IRIS newsletter is dealing with these questions before the background of current and past IRIS projects (in German language).
