Relations between Society and Education are being reconsidered at each significant point in time based on the current situation and facts. Taking into account the possibilities and limitations of the economic, social and cultural climates, it is therefore necessary to make continuous adjustments depending on the actual stage of development of the concurrent ecosystems, considering also their integrating elements, in order to synchronize the development of shared projects in the short, medium and long term in all environments: political, business, academic and social, In this framework, we have been progressing in recent years, in both theory and practice, in the construction, the development and the implementation of an inclusive ecosystem model that integrates training, research and innovation of professionals and users to provide comprehensive answers to the needs and demands of involved organizations, institutions, as well as of the citizens in general. The ecosystem model serves as a platform to manage knowledge and a network of institutions. In this article we present some of the projects that we are supporting from the Institute of Research and Educational Innovation (INIE) of the University of Oviedo, as well as the difficulties we are encountering, the progress and future challenges.
