  • Promoting Attainment of Responsible Research and Innovation in Science Education
  • Inquiry learning in primary and secondary education
  • European project (FP7, 2.500.000 euro)
  • 2014-2016



  • website, june 2014

The project aims at introducing the concept of Responsible Research and Innovation in primary and secondary education. It does so by combining inquiry-based learning and citizenship education with socio-scientific issues in science education. The project also aims to collect and share existing best practices across Europe and develop learning tools, materials and in/pre-service training courses for science teachers based on the SSIBL approach.

Our project objectives are:

  • Provide an overall educational framework for socio-scientific inquiry-based learning (SSIBL) in formal and informal learning environments;
  • Identify examples of best practice;
  • Build transnational communities consisting of science teachers, science teacher educators, science communicators, and curriculum and citizenship education experts to implement good practices of SSIBL;
  • Develop the SSIBL competencies among European primary and secondary science teachers and teacher educators;
  • Disseminate resources and best practice through PARRISE website, digital and print-based publications online and face to face courses authored by national and international networks;
  • Evaluate the educators’ success using the improved SSIBL materials with pre-service and in-service teachers.

The PARRISE educational methodology seeks to promote democratic citizenship through the integration of social issues and related scientific knowledge. Drawing from recently acquired IBSE insights and individual partner expertise, PARRISE seeks to collectively develop a community of learners, who will bring together selected best practices examined from a Research and Responsible Innovation perspective.

The consortium reflects a multidisciplinary team who will facilitate networking activities among teachers, teacher educators and educational researchers of 18 institutions in 11 countries.
