27-28th June 2017
The Sapienza University of Rome hosted the second meeting of the project "CALYPSOS, Support for social inclusion, specific needs for educational support and improvement of basic skills for prisoners in Europe" from 26 to 27 June 2018. On this occasion, we had the opportunity to continue the work started at the launch seminar in Tenerife and to share and exchange aspects of the management and development of the project.
During the first day there was an exhibition of key representatives of the Italian justice sector, universities and social organizations. The University of Sapienza gave a brief description of their organisation and the activities they carry out. The structure of the Italian penitentiary and judicial system was also presented, with emphasis on adult education in prisons.
The day continued with a visit to Rebibbia prison, one of the prisons included in the study. It was possible to visit the facilities and have a meeting with the director and some members of the technical team, who explained the operation and organization of the centre. They also commented on how they structured education for inmates and on the needs and characteristics of the prison population attending adult training
The second day of the meeting was devoted entirely to working on aspects of the project. The logo, elaborated by Meridianos, one of the partner entities, was presented. The logo contains the colours of the three countries participating in the project.
Advances in research were also presented. The planned samples have already been started and the piloting has begun. Two comparison groups are being worked on. In addition, organizational aspects of the project were specified, in terms of dissemination, economic aspects, documents, and so on.
In short, this meeting has been a great opportunity to share the work that has been done so far, and lay the foundations for developing the actions that are still pending.
