The aim of the PARRISE project is 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 Socio-Scientific Inquiry-Based Learning (SSIBL) approach.

The goal of the project is to empower and facilitate science teachers and teacher educators, by in-service and pre-service professional development courses, based on reshaped best practices available among the partners. These shared selected best practices will be reflected on from a ‘Responsible Research and Innovation’ (RRI) perspective and improved by an international ‘community of learners’ who incorporate RRI in their teaching and learning processes.

The PARRISE project has established a multidisciplinary team and facilitates networking activities among teachers, teacher educators and educational researchers of 18 institutions in 11 countries. The project builds on recently developed Inquiry-Based Science Education (IBSE) insights and fosters implementation of IBSE in educational practice.
