EMBO to coordinate EU funded project to support science teachers

The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) announces the signing of a contract for EURO 710.000 with the European Commission to coordinate a project under the title "Continuing Education for European Biology Teachers". EMBO, the EMBL (European Molecular Biology Laboratory) and the EFB (European Federation of Biotechnology) join forces in 2003 and 2004 to deliver a series of eight national and one international teachers workshops, to create a practical training programme for teachers and scientists, and to develop, archive and distribute the best teaching resources.

EMBO is organizing the workshops in conjunction with first-class European scientific institutes as local partners, ensuring that participants will gain insights into state-of-the-art methods and knowledge on hot scientific topics. The workshops will be held in Hamburg, Copenhagen, Madrid, Prague, Hinxton, Warsaw, Szeged and in Jerusalem in the native language of each country. The series will start with an international teachers workshop in English in Heidelberg (23-24 May 2003) aimed at widening the platform for international exchange.

"Improving the training opportunities for teachers is critical, and should occur increasingly at international level because of the vast benefits that can be gained by an exchange of experience and best practice between nations," says Andrew Moore, EMBO Science and Society Programme Manager. "As Europe becomes increasingly integrated at a scientific and economic level, it also has to become more integrated at the educational level, given the importance of professional mobility in the European work force today."

A second goal of the collaboration is to create a training programme that will bring teachers into the lab for hands-on activities, train scientists to work with them, and develop new assets for biology teaching. A facility will be established at the EMBL in Heidelberg putting in place staff that will perform practical activities with
