Τhe University of Nicosia (Engage), the Cyprus University of Technology (PARRISE), and the University of Cyprus (Ark of Inquiry) are co-organizing an event on “Responsible Research and Innovation” (RRI), as this is exemplified through the European RRI projects they lead in Cyprus. The focus of the event will be on how RRI can be integrated in science education practices at all educational levels.
The event will take place on Saturday, March 11th, from 9:00-13:00, at the University of Nicosia.
The event aims at discussing the ways through which students’ everyday lives may be connected to science, how students’ motivation for learning science can be increased, and how the social aspects of science can be addressed in science education lessons. The event will include presentations by researchers and practicing science teachers, who have implemented educational activities,developed in the context of the three European projects, in their classrooms.
