Exchanging views on science education at the ERIDOB conference in Cyprus

From 29.08.-2.9.2022 the ERIDOB (European Researchers in Didactics of Biology) Conference took place in beautiful Cyprus. Four of our project partners who attended the conference to present their research took the chance to meet in person and exchange ideas about the current Multipliers activities (Universities of Cyprus, Ljubljana, Bonn and Umeå).

It was a brilliant opportunity to talk to each other – finally in person! – and we cannot wait for our project meeting in Barcelona in November where all partners will come together.

Join MULTIPLIERS at the first Festival of the New European Bauhaus from 9-12 June in Brussels

From 9 to 12 June, the European Commission organises for the first time a Festival dedicated to the New European Bauhaus (NEB). Designed around three pillars, Forum, Fair and Fest and based physically in Brussels, at Gare Maritime & Mont des Arts, but equally around Europe and online, the Festival of the New European Bauhaus will bring together people from all walks of life to explore, debate and shape a beautiful, sustainable and inclusive future.

MULTIPLIERS will be represented at the Festival Fair by our project partner University of Ljubljana, who will engage festival-goers in science experiments linking science, sustainability and art. The Fair is co-created: out of the 316 applications received, 100 projects were selected to be displayed at NEB both on fixed and innovative mobile supports (from e-bikes to electrical tuk-tuks) scattered across the city centre. 

Based on the original Bauhaus movement ideals – to revolutionise the relationships between different disciplines – but upgrading it to the challenges of the 21st century, the New European Bauhaus is, in the words of the European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, a “new cultural project for Europe”. After this first pilot edition, the festival should travel in the years to come to other European cities to spread awareness of the movement to all the corners of the Union.  

Attending the festival? Look for our booth and join our science experiments!
