The Centre for Research on Theories and Practices for Overcoming Inequalities (CREA) undertakes research projects that contribute to theoretical and practical developments in the social sciences. It is chiefly concerned with the analysis of present-day society and with the development of measures to help solve the problems that this society faces, particularly in the fields of education and training.
National and european RTD research projects are currently being undertaken to analyse social inequalities and the types of training that can help to overcome these imbalances. This research is highly practical, as it is aimed at implementing measures to ensure that certain social groups are not excluded from the information society.
CREA is the direct result of extensive collaboration with research groups in other countries. The Centre studies a wide range of situations, social groups and educational policies, social utility of researches is the base of research work of the centre.
