of the Institute for Science Education and Communication (
) is partner in a recently funded EU-Horizon 2020 project titled ‘Outdoor Science Education for a Sustainable Future (OTTER)’. The project is coordinated by Geonardo Environmental Technologies in Hungary and it brings together partners from Spain, Ireland, Finland and the Netherlands. The aim of the project is to improve understanding and accreditation of science learning that takes place outside of the formal educational system and to enhance young people’s interest in STEM studies and careers.

EIC Pathfinder grants are intended to support research teams in investigating or developing an emerging breakthrough technology.
What is special about these grants is that they come under the Global Challenges & European Industrial Competitiveness branch of Horizon Europe. This means that the technological application has already been considered.
