IO1 Research

The main goal of the research is to answer the question, how we can create an innovative, Europe focused blended learning environment, in which the learning process of an individual can be monitored from the inside to outside prison? In many countries, the way of thinking in this BLEEP project is not the actual situation, namely to see education and reintegration as a continuous learning process, one that can be monitored continuously, that is dynamic and based on the needs of the prisoner AND staff. In too many countries education and reintegration is ticking boxes.

Technology provides perfect innovative tools to change this way of thinking, especially when it is combined with the knowledge of machine learning, the method of data analysis that automates analytical model building within the BLEEP platform. It is based on the idea that systems (platforms) can learn from data, identify patterns and make decisions with minimal human intervention. In order to do this, research is needed in to what will be the most effective way to create an environment like this. Each partner will do research on some shared questions, but also will have some own specific research questions based on their own intellectual outputs.
