European Science Education Network 2003

Objective

The project "European Science Education Network" results from the Action Plan of the Europear Commission "Science and Society". Cluster 3 (Science education) - working group of the CRESI Committee (EU Scientific and Technical Research Committee) was established to realise Action 15 (to develop and disseminate education research projects on science and technology) and Action 16 (to promote attractive methods of science education in schools) of the Action Plan. Cluster 3 aims to change the way of science teaching young people up to age of 18 in order to enhance the interest of youth in science and technology. The aim of the project is to analyse the weak and strong points of European educational systems, to utilise the best world experience and to offer the resulting recommendation to the European countries. Another aim of Clusters is to develop a European network of institutions and individuals active in the field of science education. Cluster 3 has decided to realise the mentioned activities in the framework of the ERA-NET Scheme. The main objectives of the present one-year SSA proposal are to prepare the future CA project, to accomplish necessary preliminary analyses, to create a large representative consortium and to promote the development of the European Science Education Network. The consortium of the present SSA project consists of nine experienced members of Cluster 3 mainly ministries of the participating countries. Co-ordinator of the project is Slovakia, charged by DG Research with the leadership of Clusters. The results of the present one-year project will be disseminated and discussed to the members of Cluster 3 (representatives of 22 European countries) and published by means of the computer network of the project - http://www.newnet.sk. The impact of the whole project will hopefully be a renewed interest of the society in science and technology, the preparation of young future researchers and engineers, indispensable for the#
