Objective

The consortium proposes a Specific Support Action for networking experts who work with and on new didactic concepts for science teaching. One of these new concepts is to systematically establish closer links between Schools and Universities. Such partnerships are considered to be innovative didactic models for developing the basic skills young people nowadays need for effective life long learning and for building scientific excellence. In many European countries initiatives have been started to facilitate partnerships between universities and schools. In some rare Member States such institutional collaboration is already promoted systematically through national programs and additional funding, a strategy for improving science teaching which is already common standard in the United States.

The consortium of the SSA will assemble experienced partners from:
5 Universities and research institutions which have been practising school-university partnerships since many years (KTU, LSU, SSIS, JSI, AIAE)
2 Ministries and foundations, supporting modern science teaching through promoting and funding institutional collaboration projects between schools and universities (BMBWK, RBF)
5 Research partners specified on innovative didactic models and new learning arrangements, who have particular expertise in analysing impacts of school university collaboration (UZH, IPN, FUB, SLO, AEIAE - working in both fields: direct research collaboration with schools and research on SUPs as well)

The overall objective of the project will be to develop a practical guideline for realising such partnerships, a joint policy paper, addressed to National and European decision makers within the educational system and a concept for preparing joint research on the issue within FP7 program.
