31st Congress of the International Network of Productive Learning Projects and Schools (INEPS):

“Productive Learning – an Answer to the Educational Challenges of 2023?", 17th to 21st April 2023 in Peurunka, Finland

--> more information / program


‘All In Ed - A Bet for School Engagement for Everyone’ is a cross European productive learning-oriented Erasmus+ project. It brings together teachers, educators and administrators in order to collect, develop and implement best practices in relation to low threshold school engagement methods.

The participating organisations are as follows: Institut Antoni Pous I Argila, Spain, NNÖMS Bad Vöslau, Austria, Grund- und Realschule plus Gerolstein, Germany, Agrupamento de Escolas a Lã e a Neve, Portugal, Keuruun yläkoulu, Finland and the University of Jyväskylä, Finland

The aims and objectives of the proposed project relate to combating early school leaving, agency centered pedagogical solutions as well as the use of ICT as a tool throughout all of these layers.

The All In Ed- project aims to address the challenges pertaining to risk of exclusion and early school leaving as a full community issue. We seek to establish common ground with students, their families and the wider community to find avenues for engagement and genuinely meaningful learning experiences that can align students with school learning environments.

The 31st INEPS Congress is organised in collaboration with the All In Ed Project.

The Administration Council of the International Network of Productive Learning Projects and Schools (INEPS) invites all members and partners to a

video conference on February 18 from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The event enables an exchange about experiences, challenges and strategies in dealing with the pandemic in productive learning.

You can find the invitation with information on registration and participation here


Due to the current situation with covid19 the congress had to be postponed. We hope that all of you will find a way through this crisis and to see you soon again!!!
