About

ADHYAYANA is a non-populist participatory platform, available to everyone, both to consult and to contribute. ADHYAYANA scientific evidence platform is focused on SDG Quality Education, from a multicultural perspective. It will deepen, on the one hand, on the development of sociological theory at the international level and, on the other hand, it will contribute to the analysis and improvement of the social impact of research.

Grounded on the principle of citizens’ participation in science its main objective is to provide citizens with a participatory science-based tool that would help them to distinguish between science-based statements and hoaxes about education. Therefore, ADHYAYANA non-profit platform is built with a bottom-up approach that brings together not only researchers and practitioners, but all citizens, both to consult and to contribute. This participatory instrument is committed to promoting an egalitarian dialogue based on validity claims about education and sharing scientific evidence with all citizens. Thus, ADHYAYANA is an Open Access platform available to everyone. Any citizen who wants to participate will be able to sign in and contribute. Participation will be totally voluntary.

The ADHYAYANA scientific evidence platform is led by the Research Group in Sociological Theory and Impact of Research (TSIR). This group aims to contribute to the development of social sciences at the service of society.

Adhyayana in Sanskrit means learning and teaching. This is what this platform does, and what is symbolized in the picture: the dialogue between the human Viasa and the divinity Ganesh writing the Mahabharata
