CCES@School – Sign up for the "Teachers' Training on River Restauration" (September 27/28, 2013)
The CCES@School initiative supports the transformation of scientific topics of CCES projects into teaching materials for science education at secondary school level. The registration for the introductory course on "Teachers' Training on River Restauration" at ETH Zurich’s MINT-Learning Center is now open. Learn more about the project here.
The overall strategic goals of the Competence Center Environment and Sustainability of the ETH Domain (CCES) are to foster major advancements in research; to establish the CCES partners as international and national focal points for environment and sustainability; to achieve a long-term structuring effect lasting beyond the completion of CCES; to establish a strong wide-ranging education and outreach program; to achieve a visible societal impact with a focus on socio-economic implementation.
The CCES implementation is based on
A. Education and Research Units
B. Integrative Elements
CCES is largely based on the long-range re-orientation and focusing of the critical mass and excellence in science and engineering already existing at the partner institutions. Activities follow a three-part scheme, with contributions from the ETH Board, dedicated resources by participating institutions, and third-party funding.
