ASSIST-ME (Assess Inquiry in Science, Technology and Mathematics Education) is a high level research project that investigates formative and summative assessment methods to support and to improve inquiry-based approaches in European science, technology and mathematics education.

Mathematics Assessment Projectmap

The Mathematics Assessment Project set out to design and develop well-engineered tools for formative and summative assessment that expose students’ mathematical knowledge and reasoning, helping teachers guide them towards improvement and monitor progress. The tools are relevant to any curriculum that seeks to deepen students’ understanding of mathematical concepts and develop their ability to apply that knowledge to non-routine problems.


PRIMAS (Promoting Inquiry in Mathematics and Science Education Across Europe) is an international project within the Seventh Framework Program of the European Union. Fourteen universities from twelve different countries have worked together over four years to promote the implementation and use of inquiry-based learning in mathematics and science. PRIMAS has developed materials for direct use in class and for professional development.


MASCIL (mathmatics and science for life!) is aimed at promoting a widespread use of inquiry-based science teaching in primary and secondary schools. In addition, the project connects mathematics and science education to the world of work: Both inquiry-based science teaching and the connection to the world of work will make mathematics and science more meaningful to students. When doing inquiry-based tasks, students work like scientists and by doing so, they acquire competencies they need for their future professional and personal lives as active citizens.


The SAILS (Strategies for Assessment of Inquiry Learning in Science) project was funded under the EU Framework Seventh Programme (2012-2015) to support teachers in adopting inquiry based science education and assessment of inquiry skills and competencies in science at second level across Europe.


The EdUmatics (European development for the use of mathematics technology in classrooms) project (2009 -2012) brought together twenty school and university partners from seven EU countries to collaborate on the design of a resource to support secondary mathematics teachers to integrate technology within their classroom practice.

mc2MC Squared

The MC (Mathematical Creativity) Squared project is developing a software platform to foster creative mathematical thinking among students and teachers, and to provide creative industries, involved in the production of multimedia content for educational purposes, with new solutions. Main outcome of the project is the development of a new technology: the “c-book” (c stands for creativity), an innovative digital medium, which extends e-book technologies.


SCIENTIX (The community for Science Education in Europe) promotes and supports a Europe-wide collaboration among STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) teachers, education researchers, policymakers and other STEM education professionals.
