Schools

Research communities can play a key role in improving the quality of the national educational system and promoting the transfer of knowledge “from laboratories to the classrooms”, with the ultimate goal of raising the scientific cultural level in the school system.

Thanks to its multidisciplinary nature, Cnr has activated a dense network of partnerships with educational institutions at all levels, in accordance with a framework agreement signed in 2012 with the Ministry of Education, University and Research (Miur).

These initiatives are in accordance with the open education’s principles recently reaffirmed by the European Commission, considering the ‘open access’ approach as an opportunity for educational organizations, teachers and students.
