Santa Cruz de Tenerife Adult Education Centre coordinated this project, which concluded with the intellectual output entitled «Study on the relationship between delinquent behaviour, executive functions and their impact on the speci c educational support needs of students in prison» based on research carried out in ve European prisons.

In addition to this product, several reports and stu- dies were carried out, which included strategies for the educational integration of prisoners with special educational needs, curricular strategies for young people in juvenile justice centres, a study for the adaptation of innovative learning situations for in- mate students, as well as guidelines and strategies for intervention and socio-educational innovation to increase school success rates among prisoners. An annex on the gender perspective was also provided.

These studies will have important empirical implica- tions for future researches and are perhaps the lar- gest studies carried out in Europe on this issue in the eld of prisons. The documents are published both on the Erasmus+ Results Platform and on the project website. In addition to the coordinating centre, the universities of La Laguna, Almería, La Sapienza of Roma and Do Minho de Portugal, the General Secre- tariat of Penitentiary Institutions of the Government of Spain, the Instituto degli Innocenti, from Florence, and two Spanish NGOs, ADIS Meridianos and Plena Inclusión Canarias, participated in Calypsos.
