European Schoolnet's Future Classroom Lab (FCL), has been progressively building a community of key stakeholders in the field of innovation in education. It is crucial for such a community to have the chance to meet, both in person and online, and explore new ways of working together more closely and transforming teaching and learning. Because of this, European Schoolnet happily hosted the first edition of the School Innovation Forum on 20 and 21 June 2019 in Brussels.
