About the Observatory

The Institute for Educational Research and Innovation is aware of the important work of the consolidated research groups that make it up and the need to support it. In addition, and with the aim of promoting research activity, it wants to strengthen the work of the institution as a single entity that works in a coordinated manner for the improvement of the education system of the Balearic Islands.

That is why it proposes an extraordinary call for research grants, aimed at supporting consolidated research groups for the application of national and international projects, for the incorporation and / or promotion of work networks and, also, for the transfer or publication of the results of their research.
