Reducing early school leaving to less than 10% across EU Member States by 2020 is one of
the EU’s priorities in the field of education. The Commission is working with Member States
to implement comprehensive strategies to prevent early school leaving and to engage early
school leavers in education and training. EDDI Project consortium members came together
to develop early diagnosis methods for Early School Leaving and to support these methods
with digital ICT opportunities. For this purpose, after the feasibility study carried out in the
project partner countries, the factors causing early school leaving were determined and
effective strategies were determined

Early Digital Diagnosis and Intervention (EDDI)
In line with the European Commission goals ( ETAT2020, EC 2018) to reduce the early education leavers statistics, the project “Early Digital Diagnosis and Intervention(EDDI)” aims to improve student retention rates. The problem of early school leaving (ESL) affects societies, economies and higher education as underscored by UNESCO, Sustainable Development Goals (2019). With schools struggling with a significant number of students who give up on education before finishing secondary school, the aim of the EDDI consortium is to find a way to keep students in education.
