From 22nd – 24th May Dr Andri Christodoulou with Sam Weston and Prof Marcus Grace from the Maths & Science Education Research Centre at the Southampton Education School had the pleasure of

hosting the fourth consortium meeting for the H2020-funded COSMOS project. In total, we had 20 participants across 7 countries and 13 partner institutions attending and working together on important next steps for our open schooling through science education approach.

The 3-day meeting focused on reviewing the work conducted in each national context for our second round of COSMOS implementation activities in primary and secondary schools as well as looking ahead at the next 6 months as we focus on evaluation and finalising our project outcomes and deliverables. We discussed the process of finalising our COSMOS framework emphasising the interrelation of key concepts (socioscientific inquiry-based learning with communities of practice and our ecological model of open schooling).  We have also made important progress in the planning of our COSMOS final conference, which will be taking place on 22nd November 2024 hosted by our coordinating institution, the University of Utrecht.

The 3-day consortium meeting was supported by the FSS KEE & Events team, specifically Elisabetta Calamelli, and the University’s Conference, Events and Hospitality team, led by Vicky Gray, who worked closely with us ensuring that our participants had a seamless experience at Southampton.
