Abstract

The NATCCC-PS network has been created as a small and short-term co-operation network of European researchers to improve the visibility and to increase the impact of European research in the field of Problem Solving, with special emphasis given to large scale international comparative studies. The main objectives of the network were
- to connect European policy demands with European experts and experience in the field of Problem Solving;
- to bring together a range of scientific experts working in the field of Problem Solving to develop new concepts and tools, and to create synergies;
- to produce a research and development plan directed to educational indicators in the field of Problem Solving.
While weak on the first objective, the network proved to be extremely successful on the two remaining goals. The networks' activities had significant impact both on the OECD PISA study and the Adult Literacy and Life Skills Survey (ALL). The activities went far beyond the originally defined work plan and generated both new research projects and applied research transfer contracts.
