Policy Recommendations: the Integration of Work-based Learning in Academic Teaching (O6)

The sixth and final intellectual output formulates policy recommendations, which are based on the evaluation of INCOPS’ practical phase. The aim of O6 is to provide different stakeholders with clear and tailored recommendations for integrating Work-based Learning (WBL) into Peace, Conflict and Security Studies (PCS). These recommendations ensure that universities can implement WBL more easily and thereby enhance the quality of these programs. They also ensure that student acquire competences. They respond to the demand of Horizon 2020 for research and innovation for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and jobs.

Within the framework of the project, INCOPS aims to identify knowledge at various levels, develop interfaces, and convey solution-oriented practices. In doing so, the project relies on a combination of previous experience, findings from the literature, and its own practical unit implemented in the project. In order to make the knowledge widely available, disseminate the ideas, and distribute them in a highly visible manner, policy recommendations are to be formulated at the end of the project. Thus, the final results will be collected in a publication and presented in the format of policy recommendations which are designed for different stakeholders on different levels.
