The Network was established by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Education and Culture to support European-level education policy development and to enhance cooperation among Member States in the area of education.
NESET provides reliable and independent scientific support as well as the specialised expertise of persons from various countries working on the role of education in reducing poverty, strengthening equity and promoting social inclusion. NESET acts in an advisory capacity to the European Commission on the social aspects of all types and levels of education. It is a knowledge broker between EU institutions and academia – providing systematic feedback on research results from the entire world.
