On 9-10 October 2019 our Foundation organized the research seminar on the methodology of assessing the effects of projects implemented within the Erasmus+ programme. The seminar entitled “Evidence-based approach in Erasmus +. Seminar on research and methodology” brought together in Warsaw, for the third time, individuals involved in research and analysis of European educational programs. The participants were Erasmus+ National Agencies representatives and researchers cooperating with the NAs, involved in evaluating the effects of the program, representing 21 countries.

The meeting was opened by Mr Paweł Poszytek, Director General of FRSE, who emphasised the priority given by the European Commission to research activity aimed at assessing the effects of the Erasmus+ programme. The first session, which addressed principles and practice of sociological and educational research, was led by Professor Howard Williamson (University of South Wales) who shared with the participants his extensive experience in conducting research with various groups of people.

During the two-day meeting, four thematic sessions were organized on such topics as:

1 – Sociological and educational research – principles and practice

2 – Counterfactual research in education

3 – Research limitations

4 – Evidence-based policy and practice: what works?

During the seminar a new formula has been applied - Research Hyde Park. It enabled each of the participants to share results of conducted research, methodologies applied and ideas for future research activity. This new formula evoked a lively interest among the seminar participants. 11 of them took their stand in Hyde Park and delivered presentations for mini-audiences.

We would like to thank All Participants and Our Distinguished Speakers for their contribution to the meeting.
