Proposals under this Horizon Europe strand should set out a credible pathway to contributing to the following overarching objectives under the Horizon Europe Strategic Plan:
- Social and economic resilience and sustainability are strengthened through a better understanding of the social, ethical, political and economic impacts of drivers of change (such as technology, globalisation, demographics, mobility and migration) and their interplay.
- Inclusive growth is boosted and vulnerabilities are reduced effectively through evidence-based policies for protecting and enhancing employment, education, social fairness and tackling inequalities, including in response to the socio-economic challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Proposals should map and collect surveys with a longitudinal design, following the learning progress of students over time, and linking with information for example on students’ achievement scores, socio-economic background, language spoken at home, migration history, the school they attend, or whether they have attended early care and childhood education.
Projects should contribute to all of the following expected outcomes:
- Map and collect existing regional or national longitudinal data allowing to follow individual cohorts of students over time and allowing to analyse their learning outcomes, and trends in educational inequalities.
- Provide policymakers with an analysis of the available literature and a selection of techniques used to assess inequalities in education, training and learning achievements over time.
- Identify the interventions that compensate inequalities in learning outcomes over time based on the analysis of longitudinal data.
