PARRISE. Promoting Attainment of Responsible Research and Innovation in Science Education

Uploaded by RRI Tools on 01 November 2015



From 01/01/2014 to 31/12/2017

Combining science with society at school. That is the aim of the PARRISE project. In that way, young people feel more engaged in science, experiencing its societal impact. By becoming more scientifically literate, young citizens are better equipped to participate in the process of science innovation.

PARRISE shares and improves best practices of professional development of science teachers for primary and secondary teachers across Europe. These best practices integrate two pedagogical approaches: inquiry-based science education (IBSE) and learning based on socio-scientific issues. This integrated approach is called Socio-Scientific Inquiry-Based Learning (SSIBL). The SSIBL approach introduces the challenges of Responsible Research and Innovation in education.
