Abstract

In June 1995, the research proposal 'Labwork in science Education' was written to address the work content of the Fourth call of Targeted Socio-economic Research. Given their expertise and competencies, the future group-leaders were keen to address the general concern of DGXII with education, and specifically Science teaching. It was decided to provide:
- a new formulation of objectives to meet new needs
- study and elicitation of the general advantages of specific aspects of national systems of Education
- an overview of the key competencies promoted through labwork with respect to the labour market
- awareness of the evolution of the educational systems
A general aim was also to constitute a community of researchers able to take forward collaboration at European level. Towards these various aims, a topic specific of natural sciences was chosen, namely the place of experiments in teaching, generally called labwork. Though often studied in the community of international researchers, a strong basis of mutual knowledge in the European context was missing on this subject.
