Education programmes for young people

Innovation in education

Our educational programmes foster innovation in science education by promoting interdisciplinarity and cooperation among different social actors and by encouraging participatory community research that fosters learning, generates new knowledge and stimulates change.

Our projects focus on socio-scientific challenges – linked to current research and to different disciplines – to be systemically solved through disciplinary/interdisciplinary research, and simultaneously promotes inquiry-based teaching, cooperative learning and training evaluation. To promote scientific reasoning and critical analysis of R&I, we also promote reflection on aspects related to the nature of science and on related ethical, legal, social and economic aspects.
