DESIRE (Disseminating Educational Science, Innovation and Research in Europe)

The European project DESIRE (Disseminating Educational Science, Innovation and Research in Europe) developed models of diffusion and exploitation to ease the spreading of science education projects results to teachers.

The primary objective was to identify how new project results on methods and practises in science education can reach teachers and schools more efficiently. Therefore the project invited science teachers, STEM professionals, science project planners, policy-makers, organisers of science events and organisers of activities and expositions in museums to tell about their experience in accessing or disseminating tools and methods that have helped know about project results. The sharing of practical experience helped identify the best practise dissemination models for project results. DESIRE aimed to ensure that more teachers throughout Europe have access to inspiring methods and tools they can integrate into their teaching practices.
