NESET (formerly NESET II), a network of European and international researchers prominent in the social dimension of education and training, has reached another milestone.

The Network’s Final Report of 2018 has been officially confirmed by the European Commission, which officially closes a four-year contract.


During the past year the Network has produced the following analytical reports:



1.  ‘The role and place of ECEC in integrated working, benefitting vulnerable groups such as Roma’ by Ankie Vandekerckhove, Hester Hulpia, Jana Huttova, Jan Peeters, Danut Dumitru, Claudiu Ivan, Szilvia Rezmuves, Eugenia Volen and Alina Makarevičienė

2. ‘Teaching media literacy in Europe: evidence of effective school practices in primary and secondary education’ by Julian McDougall, Marketa Zezulkova, Barry van Driel, Dalibor Sternadel.




NESET experts also answered an ad hoc question from the Commission:



1.  ‘The links between education and active citizenship/civic engagement’ by Irina Golubeva




All analytical and ad hoc responses produced throughout the project period can be accessed here.

As per usual, the highlight of the year was the thought-provoking annual conference, titled ‘Strengthening Common European Values through Education. What does the Evidence tell us?’. The event was co-organised by NESET, EENEE and Directorate General for Education and Culture (DG EAC), and held on November 22, in Brussels. The conference proceedings are available on the Network’s website (here).

NESET will continue to be coordinated by PPMI for the four upcoming years.
