European Schoolnet (EUN), is a network of 34 ministries of education in Europe and beyond. As a non-profit organisation, the aim of the network is to bring innovation in teaching and learning to ministries of education, schools, teachers, researchers and private sector partners. EUN is positioned as an Ideas Lab, able to help its Ministries develop policies to support the educational reform process at European level based on evidence and facts. Founded in 1997, the organisation is based in Brussels and counts around 70 staff and experts.
The mission of the organisation is to support ministries of education, schools, teachers and relevant education stakeholders in Europe in the transformation of education processes for the digitalised society of the 21st century. EUN works on three strategic areas:
- Providing usable evidence and data in innovation in education to inform policy recommendations (via peer exchanges, policy experimentations, surveys and reports and via its various working groups);
- Supporting schools and teachers in their teaching practices as well as international exchange and sharing (via the animation of three European networks – eTwinning, Scientix and BIK);
- Developing and sustaining a network of schools engaged in innovative teaching and learning approaches (via the activities organized around the Future Classroom Lab and via the Future Classroom Lab Ambassadors scheme).
European Schoolnet will assist the Life Terra project in the creation and roll-out of the education course in different countries.
