The Research Center for Inclusive Education (RCIE) is a cooperative project of three higher educational institutions in Styria, Austria - the University of Graz (Uni Graz), the University College of Teacher Education Styria (PHSt) and the Private University College of Teacher Education, Diocese Graz-Seckau (KPH Graz).
The main goal of the center is to bundle the research expertise and competences of these three institutions in order to cooperate in national and international research projects on inclusive and digital education. Additionally, the center aims to contribute to improving the quality of inclusive education, as well as furthering the development of teacher education.
The inaugural meeting of the RCIE was held virtually on July 16, 2020. The rectors of the three institutions and the nominated extended leadership team attended the meeting.
