Identifying Effective Approaches to Enhancing the Social Dimension of Higher Education (IDEAS)

Identifying Effective Approaches to Enhancing the Social Dimension of Higher Education (IDEAS)

IDEAS project was launched in October 2013 with the financial support of the European Commission and aims to increase the understanding of the environmental, social and political factors paving the way to success. Among the main project outcomes are: a database enlisting initiatives (programmes/policies/projects) that enhance equity in access, participation and completion of higher education across Europe; analysis of the data to look for evidences of causal links between the initiatives and improvements in equity for their target groups.

ESU together with other partners to this project, works to develop a database enlisting initiatives (programmes/policies/projects) that enhance equity in access, participation and completion of higher education across Europe. The research team will also analyse the data to look for evidences of causal links between the initiatives and improvements in equity for their target groups. The hope is that this research will manage to increase the understanding of the environmental, social and political factors that pave the way for success. Examples of successful initiatives will also be identified and disseminated widely to promote good practice throughout Europe. Please go to the project’s website for more information about its activities http://equityideas.eu/
