From 2012-01-01 to 2015-12-31
The aim of this project is to support teachers in adopting inquiry based science education (IBSE) at second level (students aged 12-18 years) across Europe. This would be achieved by utilizing existing resources and models for teacher education in IBSE both pre-service and in-service.
From 2013-02-01 to 2016-07-31
The aim of this teacher training project is to help transform science and mathematics teaching practice across Europe by giving teachers new skills to engage with their students, exciting new resources and the extended support needed to effectively introduce enquiry based learning into their classrooms. This would be achieved by working with teacher training institutions and teacher networks across Europe through innovative training programmes called enquiry labs.
Given the vitally important role of scientific and technological research in modern societies it is of paramount importance to ensure structures that could offer funding opportunities. Horizon 2020 is currently the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme for offering such opportunities. Horizon 2020 is divided into seven sections, which vary in terms of their focus. One of these sections is Science with and for Society. This is expected to hold an instrumental role in building capacities and developing innovative ways of connecting science to society.
From 2013-11-01 to 2016-10-31
In the project IRRESITIBLE partners work together to make young people more aware about Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) issues. Universities and science centers cooperate in the project using the expertise they have in linking formal and informal learning.
From 2013-01-01 to 2016-12-31
This project aims to promote a widespread use of inquiry-based science teaching (IBST) in primary and secondary schools. The major innovation is to connect IBST in school with the world of work making science more meaningful for young European students and motivating their interest in careers in Science & Teaching. To this end, training courses are formulated, in which pre- and in-service teachers learn about IBST supported by teachers from vocational education, representatives from industry and informal learning.
The PRI-SCI-NET project has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement no. 266647.
