2. organisation of four teacher-training courses at national level (in each of the 13 partner countries) and three European training courses;
3. providing professional recognition for teachers, researchers and trainers through the Recognition for Excellence in IBSE Certificate;
4. setting up a Europe-wide network for professionals and academics in primary science education to provide training and professional support to primary teachers and support them in using IBSE in their teaching.
