Research And Development Project Responsibilities

We incorporate new technologies to our experiences in education and research, connecting empirically with the testing of new methodologies and the active involvement of target groups, in the respect of ethics and human development.

CESIE’s macro research-areas and themes of interest:

Quality Assurance and Evaluation Procedures

CESIE is experienced in monitoring and assessing the implementation and the impact of a variety of projects. As a lead partner of this activity we might be in charge of creation of the quality assurance system, the process monitoring, assuring that all planned activities and products/services or results respond to quality standards.

We create target-tailored evaluation methods and procedures to assure projects’ quality and for performing the evaluation of all project activities and results in an accountable and comprehensive way.

Mainly we refer to two main frameworks a) quality of management and b) quality in moderation of assessment, which relates to the implementation development of researches, resources, trainings, etc.

Additionally, we are able to follow closely the evolution of a project and present to the Project Manager findings and recommendations for the improvement of the project implementation in a concise reporting procedure.

Outreach and Dissemination Strategies

CESIE has a strong and extensive potential for dissemination actions in terms of distribution of information and creation of visual identities, educational videos and product design. We also have participated over the years in the creation of digital products, websites, e-platforms, MOOCs, OERs, social pages and other ICT tools.

In Your future proposal our strong dissemination capacity might be used to create Dissemination strategy and lead the promotional activities, as we can guarantee the necessary impact of the project through proactive strategies of dissemination and exploitation of research and innovation results to different groups of stakeholders.

Exploitation of Results

Knowledge adaptation, transfer and multiplication is key to our work.

To make the most out of our efforts in various subject areas and directed to different target groups, there is a catalogue of products developed in the last years where You can seek for guidance, reports, training and teaching material with a focus on various methodologies.

Visit here our Digital Library where you can filter your learning interests among 16 categories!

Capacity Building

Capacity building is one of CESIE’s milestones as it works for the development of knowledge, skills and capabilities of individuals and organisations through training, acquisition of new resources, strategies, conceptual frameworks and organisational attitudes, in order to overcome exclusion and help the progress of communities and societies.

We do believe that education nourishes economic growth. Therefore, education promotes individual wellbeing as well as economic development of societies by stimulating innovation and entrepreneurship.

CESIE organises and hosts training events – to deliver capacity enhancement, to raise awareness about European values, to share experiences, to transfer know-how to other working and living environments and to support social inclusion.

Mobility Learning Opportunities

Mobility learning experiences have proven to be one of the most effective sources of acquiring transversal and technical competences and certainly, promote the lifelong learning approach. CESIE’s actions are therefore based upon a long-term approach and focus on inclusion, active participation, employability and entrepreneurship.

CESIE’s Mobility department is devoted to support mobility experiences for people at all ages, in order to overtake borders and sectors and turn the learning process into a real life experience.

Discover our mobility and learning opportunities, get inspired and motivated by other people’s stories and testimonies, and eventually enjoy a mobility experience with CESIE!
