The research and development of adult education are among the key activities of the SIAE since its founding. The results of research and development work represent the basis for the systemic regulation of adult education and the management of an effective policy aimed at promoting adult learning and education in Slovenia.

Research and development work is carried out in the scope of regular tasks, international projects and other expert tasks.

Regular tasks are carried out in two areas: 

  • the adult education system, covering tasks relating to the monitoring of the implementation of the national adult education programme (analysis of implementation for the year 2011), the drafting of the national programme for the period 2012–2015, preparing report Follow-up of CONFINTEA VI and other tasks supporting the systemic regulation of adult education; 
  • non-formal adult learning and education, covering adult literacy activities, the coordination of study circles and reading circles, including professional support, the integration of migrants in the education system and the promotion of sustainable development in accordance with local needs.

Other tasks include the evaluation of adult primary school education, the upgrading and maintenance of the application for monitoring the implementation of the national adult education programme and the evaluation of adult secondary school education.

We participate in three international projects – BELL, EurAlpha and Study Circles.
