Venue: Bergamo (Italy)

Cost: 0 €

The conference will help participants evaluate institutional policies and good practices developed by HE organisations in Europe to foster the educational and social inclusion of under-represented groups as well as of non-traditional learners. The conference pursues four specific objectives:

- to establish a map of the institutional policies for attending to underrepresented groups in relation to academic access and success
- to establish guidelines to be implemented by HE organisations to promote initiatives aimed to encourage the access and successful development of students who are under-represented in universities
- to co-create strategies and measures promoting the access, continuation (and success) of vulnerable students and non-traditional learners at university
- to create a laboratory for the creation of innovative and flexible strategies in order to promote the commitment of Higher Education institutions to the most vulnerable student groups.

Through international comparison and case analysis provided by researchers and experts from six European countries, the conference will address one of the important features of the Erasmus+ programme: “Promoting equity and inclusion by facilitating the access to learners with disadvantaged backgrounds and fewer opportunities compared to their peers”.

All those people interested on the topics of the conference are invited to present their experiences and research results during the parallel sessions that will take. Further information on the papers and abstracts on the Conference Website.
