Issue 66 of the research*eu Results Magazine – Let there be light: technology for the visually impaired

Every October sees the celebration of World Sight Day in the face of a thought-provoking statistic: of all the blind or visually-impaired people out there, 80 % are avoidably so. But how about the other 20 %? EU-funded research projects have given them reason for hope and this issue shines a light on some of the innovative solutions they’ve developed to ensure they’re not left behind in the dark.

The research*eu Results Magazine is the main source of information for all findings related to EU-funded science projects. It covers a large spectrum of scientific topics and is published 10 times per year in English.

Permanent Representation of Sweden to the EU

Square de Meeûs 30 – 1000 Brussels



The Education Research and Innovation sector deserves the utmost priority because it contributes largely to the individual, social and economic well-being of a country and the European Union as a whole.

This seminar took place at the Permanent Representation of Sweden to the EU and focused on the fact that Research and Innovation funding on education and training has been rather limited on the EU-level.

In this regard, panel discussions were organized in order to promote a more ambitious and structured approach for Education Research and Innovation in the next EU Framework Programme FP9.



Director Andreas Schleicher from the OECD talked about the main challenges of education which regard the pace of progress, efficiency, relevance, equity, and lifelong learning.

A number of distinguished researchers presented and highlighted what Education Research and Innovation can contribute with to support education and education policy.

Jan-Eric Gustafsson from the University of Gothenburg presented theories about the fundamental importance of knowledge and skills for individuals and society.

A presentation on evidence informed-policies was given by Jan Pakulski, Head of Unit A.4, Evidence-Based Policy and Evaluation from Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture.

Dirk Jacobs from Université Libre de Bruxelles discussed educational challenges faced by migrant children.

Nienke van Atteveldt from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam delivered a presentation on Educational neuroscience: The importance of crossing disciplines to understand learning and development.

Paul Leseman from Utrecht University focused on early childhood education and care in Europe’s 21st century and why we need more research & development.
