Research Projects



The project team consists of eight partners comprising four universities and four partners as follows:

  • Artevelde University of Applied Sciences, Belgium (project coordinator),
  • Norwegian University of Science and Technology,
  • Queen's University of Belfast,
  • Complutense University of Madrid, 
  • Fundación Secretariado Gitano (FSG),
  • Voice of Young People in Care (VOYPIC), 
  • Trondheim Kommune/Link
  • Flemish Agency Growing Up


Together, we are a strong team from different cultural backgrounds and with different expertise which we share together, and which places us in an excellent position to build knowledge, approaches and methods from different perspectives and understandings. We believe that we can achieve better results by working in a transnational context. We strive to help social workers so that they can collaborate with children introducing new insights, methods and ideas, to enable children to access their own voice and wider participation rights.
