New Project Approved : UPPScience

September 2016 – UPPScience Project has been approved! UPPScience is a Strategic Partnership for Vocational Schools. The partnership is made up of 21 universities, schools, education authorities and other organisations from 9 countries under the leadership of the Norges Teknik-Naturvitenskapelige Universitet of Norway.

UPPScience stands for Using Profiling and Publishing for the upping of Scientific Approaches. It builds on the success of the VISConti project and widens the scope and functions of the Community of Practice that was created in VISConti.

It brings together professionals from management of vocational education and training and students from early Higher Education into one Community that will be a platform for publishing of small research projects through an intensive exchange by way of peer review and mentoring.

ValIda will be a member of the Quality and Editorial Board of UPPScience, will support the effort to create a community of stakeholders around the UPPScience project and will take part in the training activities as training provider, hosting one of the training sessions.
