Future EU funding
If you search funding for your projects in the next future, have a look at the European Commission’s Work Programme 2014  relating to the new EU fund period 2014-2020. Psychologists in Education may benefit by the increased funding of education and research across Europe:

“Combating youth unemployment is a key priority: the unacceptably high levels of youth unemployment are having severe social consequences and could have serious long-term implications for the future prospects of those affected and for the dynamism of the European economy. Implementation by the Member States of the Youth Guarantee will be of critical importance in kick-starting job creation for young people and in improving the transition from school to work. It is essential to invest in education and skills and increase labour mobility... Tapping into the potential of key growth sectors, such as …health and social care, should be a particular priority. Finally, … social exclusion and inequality remains an important challenge. Maximising the potential of European Structural and Investment Funds will also make a critical contribution to recovery. Additionally, drivers for boosting education, training, skills, employment and social cohesion will be reinforced through the implementation of EU wide programs such as Erasmus+, the Programme for Employment and Social Innovation, the European Globalization Adjustment Fund ...To remain competitive in the world, the EU needs to support investment in innovation and research through a full implementation of the Horizon 2020 programme..."
