Since its beginnings, CLAYSS has led processes to produce knowledge in the service-learning field through research; these research studies account for the latest advances in service-learning, the contributions of the programmes to educational institutions, and how service-learning engages in dialogue with public policy. In turn, there is regular monitoring and evaluation of the programmes, which are necessary tools to analyse the effects of the implementation of the projects on the educational agents: educators and students, educational institutions and the community. From 2020, this has been reinforced thanks to the design of a specific Research, Monitoring and Evaluation area to enhance case studies and experiences. The most significant research works carried out to date are the following:

CLAYSS is currently developing two research projects related to the implementation of its support programmes to institutions.
