Towards Equitable Access in Higher Education – A Lifelong Learning Challenge

The EquNet project has brought together a consortium of renowned research organisations and stakeholder representatives to work as a research-based advocacy network to increase access to Higher Education for all marginalised and non-traditional groups based on a principle of equity. The closing seminar “Equity in European Higher Education: State of the research, problems, ideas and perspectives” was organised on 7 November in Brussels by the MENON Network and brought together some 50 researchers, policy-makers and practitioners in the field of equity research and policies in higher education. Report on the Seminar is available here. EquNet findings are being published in a series of reports called “Evolving Diversity” (1-3).
