Ten years of successful international collaboration have established the University of Education Freiburg, Germany as a significant research centre and disseminator of innovative practices in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education. Core features of our work and success are:
- Connecting research, practice and policy perspectives
- Focussing on both research and active dissemination of innovative STEM education concepts
- Promoting sustainable networks at the European level linking relevant actors and stakeholders
- Professional management of our activities in a multi-disciplinary team of researchers, educators and management professionals
With the establishment of the International Centre for STEM Education (ICSE), the year 2017 marks another step forward in our work linking European research on STEM education with its transfer into practice and policy.
The rationale behind ICSE is to subsume and further enhance our institution's successful activities in this field, and to sustainably link research-, policy- and practice-oriented key actors in STEM education from across Europe through the international centre. The establishment of ICSE at the University of Education Freiburg is therefore paralleled by the foundation of a Consortium for STEM Education, comprising leading research and development institutes from across Europe. The Consortium of institutes, all with a focus on STEM education research and its transfer, will serve to strengthen further collaboration and networking, such as through joint research and projects, a newsletter, staff and student exchanges, and other activities.
