Sustainability
Aims to ensure that the project results will be used after the end of the project lifetime. The actions to be carried out are:
- Promote the Portal through exchange links with Portals dealing with similar topics (e.g. Portals providing educational materials for teachers; portals on education, etc.).
- Promote dialogue between public authorities and key policy makers in order to achieve institutional consensus and promote the insertion of the project results in education policies.
- Involve new members as associate partners.
Evaluation
The aim of evaluation is to measure and ensure the quality of all activities and the intellectual output of the project. Both project partners and end-users are involved and will be asked to complete ad hoc questionnaires.

Description of activities carried out:

Coordination of the activities
UPO, in cooperation with PIXEL produced all the material for the kick-off meeting. UPO assisted in the organisation and management of the initial partners' meeting (hiring of online secretariat and management of simultaneous translation) which took place online, and has assisted in the preparation of the agenda for the second partners' meeting to be held in Dublin in October 2022. In particular:
1. assisted in the preparation of the agenda.
2. Built the intellectual templates which are discussed at the meetings and which are the basis for the work of each intellectual product. 3.
4. The presentation of the commitments made and to be made was created using MS PowerPoint and was presented during the meeting.
5. UPO together with PIXEL was in charge of the transnational coordination and supervision of each activity to be carried out by the partners, checking the fulfilment of the calendar of activities with established deadlines and mailing lists to manage each period of time. UPO was also in charge of establishing individual relationships with the partners who needed support or clarification of the intellectual production. UPO produced the forms to be used for intellectual activities and project management. Together with Pixel, UPO encouraged the partners to meet the deadlines by clarifying and supporting as many questions as necessary.

Dissemination
Upo has organised several dissemination events on social media and partner websites.
The IHES Portal and the results of the IHES project have been shared with various educational institutions and media (e.g. BICEFACS pp. 34-35) https://www.upo.es/cms2/export/sites/facultades/facultad-ciencias-sociales/es/de-interes/.galleries/Boletines/11-BICEFACS-17-07-22.pptx.pdf

UPO designed the project brochure in English and managed publicity material.
Exploitation
UPO created the templates to be used by the partners to carry out the activities of exploitation of intellectual products.
UPO has designed together with ISCTE the analytical frameworks of the IO1, the categories of analysis that have formed the scientific basis for the data collection instruments of the DELPHI and the focus groups.
Specifically, UPO has generated material for the exploitation of a DELPHI group of 6 disability specialists and the carrying out of 4 focus groups (of teachers, managers, students with intellectual disabilities and students without disabilities).
The UPO has been in charge of compiling the material from the ICSTE and University of Florence focus groups for joint systematisation and analysis. This material has been transferred to the other partners so that they can elaborate the contents of the IO1 online course.
Until 30 September 2022, UPO has been in charge of designing the category system that develops the IO2 work areas. With this category system, the exploitation templates for the IO" have been designed and sent to the partners for discussion in meeting 2 (Dublin 2022).

Evaluation
The internal evaluation of the project activities is carried out according to an evaluation model developed by Pixel.
According to the evaluation model adopted UPO and all its researchers have filled in regarding management activities; information systems; organisation of meetings, etc.

Dissemination
So far UPO has carried out 8 dissemination events. The main tasks of the exploitation (e.g. conducting the focus groups) are being dynamised through IHES and UPO's own social networks, Instagram, Twiter and Facebook https://mobile.twitter.com/fcslabupo

Exploitation partners
UPO has generated links with 3 associated partners:
Camilo José Cela University
Fundación Once
Faculty of Social Sciences. Laboratory of the Faculty of Social Sciences https://www.upo.es/facultad-ciencias-sociales/es/fcslab/entidades-colaboradoras-proyectos/#ihes
