As we surface the final year of the NEST project and focus on results exploitation and dissemination, the University of Duisburg Essen showcased the preliminary results of the NEST project at two major European research events, leaving mark on the landscape of educational studies.

At the 20th Biennial EARLI (European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction), the University of Duisburg Essen presented a pivotal paper titled Predicting Teacher Attrition at Disadvantaged Schools – Impact of a Mentoring Intervention. On another front, the European Conference on Educational Research (ECER) provided the stage for another significant paper from the NEST project. Titled Analysing the Notion of ‘Disadvantaged’ Schools in a European Context: Consequences for Pedagogical Interventions.

As the year progresses, we are looking forward for the release of the NEST project’s final evaluation, scheduled for publication by the end of this year. Following this, a series of dissemination events will unfold across all pilot countries, allowing stakeholders and the public to engage with the project’s findings firsthand.

Last but not least, the Final EU Conference, which will take place in Brussels in March (exact date to be confirmed), promises to be a culmination of insights, discussions, and collaborative efforts aimed at shaping the future of education across the European Union. Stay tuned for more!
