OP. Edu – the Observatory for Education and Training Policies opens its doors on 23 November to visitors who want to get in touch about its mission, activities and ongoing research projects.
This initiative is part of the Science and Technology Week 2023 programme, which aims to showcase national scientists, what they research and their contributions to the advancement of knowledge and the well-being of society.
OP.Edu is a joint creation of the Interdisciplinary Research Centre for Education and Development (CeiED) from Lusófona University and the Centre for Social Studies (CES) from the University of Coimbra. Its aim is to disseminate information and carry out studies and fundamental and applied research that can improve a better understanding of education and training policies and practices.

Next 2 November at 4.15pm, in an online session with free attendance, we’ll be talking to the sociologist, full professor and researcher João Teixeira Lopes about his book, published this year, “ELAS”.
This is a book about young women from working class backgrounds who have achieved great academic success at university. Starting with their life narratives, crossing past, present and anticipation of the future, it covers areas such as childhood and family, schooling, sociabilities, intimacy, love and sexuality, leisure and cultural practices, attitudes towards class and gender inequalities, and the relationship with religion and politics.
We’ll be talking to João Teixeira Lopes about this “exercise of a sociology close to the ground”, in an initiative organised by OP.Edu – Observatory for Education and Training Policies, in liaison with ESEL-IPLUSO – School of Education of IPLUSO and LusoGlobe – Lusophone Centre on Global Challenges.
