The "European Days of Research & Innovation" took place for the third time in June 2021. The European Commission invites policy makers, researchers, entrepreneurs and the public to debate the future of research and innovation in Europe. The conference was particularly interesting because it dealt with the new EU research and innovation programme "Horizon Europe". The conference report contains summaries, quotes and images from the two-day event. The conference website also provides videos of the individual sessions and workshops.

The corona pandemic, which has been rampant since March 2020, has led to massive problems in the education systems of all countries worldwide: closed schools and inadequate digital teaching have lead to large educational gaps among students. This situation has been going on for a year now. During this time, the OECD, together with UNESCO, UNICEF and the World Bank, has collected data from around the world on how different education systems are coping with the challenge and crisis management. The report linked here offers first preliminary results.

The International Handbook of Inclusive Education has been published Open Access

Cover des Handbuchs Inklusion International + Zusatzinfo

The International Handbook of Inclusive Education was published in January 2021 and is accessible online and free of charge. It provides an overview of international comparative research on inclusion. In particular, the authors of the book explore the question of how a global paradigm such as that of inclusion is translated into national norms and local practices. This is done among others by building on case studies from Europe, Africa, Asia and North America. The articles are either in German or in English.

At the end of the year, we completely revised and updated our international OER dossier. The OER movement can now look back on several years of activity. Many projects have now expired. But many new ones have also been created, building on the knowledge gained from older projects ("lessons learned"). Networks and repositories with OER material have emerged. Much literature has also been published on OER, including critical voices. You can find all of this in our new web dossier on international perspectives on OER. We hope you enjoy reading!
