InGRIDInclusive Growth Research Infrastructure Diffusion – referring to the EU2020-ambition of Inclusive Growth, aims to integrate and to innovate existing, but distributed European social sciences research infrastructures on ‘Poverty and Living Conditions’ and ‘Working Conditions and Vulnerability’ by providing transnational data access, organizing mutual knowledge exchange activities and improving methods and tools for comparative research. This integration will provide the related European scientific community with new and better opportunities to fulfil its key role in the development of evidence-based European policies for Inclusive Growth. 

In this regard specific attention is paid to a better measurement of related state policies, to high-performance statistical quality management, and to dissemination/outreach activities with the broader stakeholder community-of-interest, including European politics, civil society and statistical system. A better measurement and understanding of vulnerable groups is the common and shared expected impact of this integrated research infrastructure.

DITA trumpalaikių vizitų kvietimas

The International Tuning Academy has been established with the aim of making the results of all Tuning and Tuning-related projects accessible to the academic community and stipulating research on Tuning-related topics. The present call is launched by the Deusto headquarters of the Tuning Academy: Deusto International Tuning Academy (DITA).

The research projects we are looking for will focus on one of these topics:
1) analysing and evaluating the impact produced by the Tuning projects at the level of particular higher education programmes/institutions/countries/regions;
2) approaches to learning, teaching and assessment of generic competences – concrete examples of what is done within higher education degrees accompanied by enhancement proposals based on both theoretical and empirical data;
3) staff development initiatives that facilitate implementation of competence-based approach – critical evaluation of their effectiveness and how well they meet the needs;
4) curriculum reform and incorporation of Tuning approach in institutional and national policies.
If you believe that your research project is closely related to the TUNING lines but is not included in any of the four broad research topics indicated above, you may still apply and your application will be considered. However, research projects within the three research topics will be prioritized.
