6: Education, Knowledge and Culture

RG6 - Education, Knowledge and Culture (a new RG resulting from the development and growth of the previous RG1 Research Team with the same name), focus on the relationship between education-science-culture and human development, considering its role in social mobility, decrease or increase of educational and cultural inequalities.

Underlying the diversity of projects, we can find a common framework based on the strong relationship between fundamental research - with a robust theoretical basis - and applied research.

The group has four research teams:
1) Social contexts of educational success and failure;
2) School and community;
3) Curriculum, technologies and training;
4) Higher education.
