Project ID: 20817
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

This is the final report of the 'European Children's Future University Network' (ECFUN) project. The aim was to provide didactically outstanding scientific content for children deriving from underrepresented groups and establish a future network - both in cyberspace and real life. The virtual platform provided the opportunity for children to learn more about what the scientific world is based upon.

The document describes the project's objectives and the activities performed under individual work packages towards the project's completion. There is specific reference in the meetings that took place for each work package, comments on the deviations from schedule and graphs showing the project's progress.

The core element and main result of the ECFUN project was the web portal http://www.ecfun.eu, which comprises 69 content sets (scientific lectures and articles) taken from 10 scientific main areas, which come along with individual biographies of involved scientists, which outline their personal interests and careers - and thus are capable for acting as role models.
