In today's knowledge society, characterized by constant change processes and the integration of ICTs into every area and activity, it is becoming increasingly necessary for institutions and states to have lines or strategies of action that optimize resources while ensuring adequate results effectively and efficiently.

Understanding education as an engine for change and social development, we believe it is essential to set research- and innovation-based educational policies by taking into account the social and educational context in a way that establishes areas and lines of action in the short, medium and long term.

The education system, viewed from a comprehensive and holistic perspective, is experiencing a myriad of trials and projects aimed at improving the teaching-learning process. But do we really know the impact of these projects? Are all components of the system interacting properly and focused on the same goals? Are the education policies based on the social reality of the country? What criteria are being followed to set and develop these policies? Are they aligned with policies being carried out in neighbouring European countries? What mechanisms are in place to ensure certain levels of quality?

In this thematic line, we will discuss these and other issues, such as teacher training and the influence of ICTs on the education system, in order to help establish realistic and sustainable educational policies that look to the future and are tailored to the needs of an open society in constant change.
