What is KoLaborategia?

KoLaborategia is the Center for Educational Innovation of the Faculty of Humanities and Education Sciences of Mondragon University. The mission of KoLaborategia is to create and share knowledge about education and to promote educational innovation. For years, the Faculty of Humanities and Education Sciences has been researching all processes and stages of education and disseminating the knowledge derived from that research to educational organizations. KoLaborategia aims to accumulate research, consultancy and professional training experience in order to influence processes of educational innovation and the quality of education.

The KoLaborategia Center for Educational Innovation was created for several specific reasons:

  • To combine educational innovation research, consultancy and professional training.
  • To build bridges between educational organizations and the university.
  • To provide a space for meetings, reflection, training, development, collaboration and experimentation to organizations and agents involved in educational innovation.
  • To investigate challenges in education from an interdisciplinary and global perspective and to be able to respond to those challenges.


  • Collaborative educational research.
  • To become an outstanding meeting point for the training and development of educational organizations and professionals in education.
  • To promote, enrich and strengthen educational innovation processes from the standpoint of interdisciplinarity and with a global perspective.
  • To promote the participation of teachers in training and provide opportunities for them to reflect and collaborate with professionals.
