Meeting 14th Meeting of CeiED Researchers

50 Years of Democracy: New Directions for Education and Research

In the year we celebrate 50 years of democracy in Portugal, the 14th CeiED Researchers' Meeting aims to reflect on the new directions for education and research. Democracy and the establishment of fundamental rights have brought, among others, the right to education, leading to a path that today has resulted in a 12-year compulsory education system, with an inclusive perspective in its broadest sense.

From a country with significant educational lag, Portugal has come to match the most advanced educational systems, both in basic and secondary education, as well as in higher education. In turn, research has followed a similar path, developing, deepening, and today playing a crucial role in the expansion of knowledge in response to complex challenges of various kinds, with researchers integrated into international teams in support of global agendas.

Looking to the future, we are concerned about uncertainty, the volatility of knowledge, and the ability to respond to the new digital world, climate change, among others, without leaving anyone behind, making use of the rights we gained 50 years ago. CeiED invites its entire scientific community - undergraduate, master's, doctoral, post-doctoral students, researchers, and professors, to reflect on how Education and Research can contribute to a better world for future generations, based on the values of equity and social justice.
