Universidade Católica Portuguesa joins Iberic Observatory in Educational Leadership
The research groups in Education from three universities - Universidade Católica Portuguesa (UCP), Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC) and Universidade Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) - have created an Iberic Observatory in Educational Leadership (EDULID).
The main objectives of the Observatory are: (i) to collect, develop and disseminate scientific and practical knowledge about Educational Leadership in the Iberian Peninsula; (ii) to enable the positioning of research groups on educational leadership in this territory in an international scientific audience; (iii) to contribute to the improvement of educational leadership in the Iberian territory.
The idea rises in the scope of the research carried out in the Research Centre for Human Development from UCP (CEDH), and Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC) and Universidade Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) have joined in as promoters through their research groups EDO-UIC e EDO-UAB. EDULID will be officially presented during the X Jornadas Internacionales del grupo EDO, which will take place in May 2019 in Barcelona. The Observatory will be equally presented in the city of Porto, Portugal, in July 2019, during the III International Conference – Education, Territories and Human Development.
