Paris: meeting report


The IERS “Intercultural  Education through Religious Studies” Project’s Partners attended the three-days Meeting in Paris, from 21 to 23 October, hosted by Prof. Isabelle Saint-Martin at the Institut européen en sciences des religions, part of the École pratique des hautes études.

The aim of the meeting was to assess the core actions of the Project, such as the Digital Modules productions, the Baseline Study creation and the Teachers’ Support Activities.  In particular the discussion concerning the Digital Modules production fostered an exchange of views between the associated schools’ teachers who also attended the Meeting.

The outcomes of the Meeting were an improved awareness of the next steps to be followed in order to provide further synergy between universities and schools and in order to deliver the final version of the Project products, such as Digital Modules and Baseline Study, by the end of the year 2014.

The Meeting was characterized by a smooth and friendly atmosphere that further enlightened the value of fruitful cooperation among European partners.
