AMU researchers in the European health promotion project

A team from the Faculty of Biology and the Faculty of Educational Studies is participating in the Partnerships for Science Education (PAFSE) project. Its main objective is to raise our awareness and better prepare society for future public health challenges.

'The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic shook the system that governed the world and our reality, revealing inequalities and highlighting the need for more effective global strategies to promote public health,' says Professor Eliza Rybska, project leader. - Raising awareness and preparing the public to prevent future epidemics and other public health threats has become an important issue. Understanding the inherent relationships between humans and other living organisms, as well as their environment, has become a fundamental issue that educational authorities and the communities with which they interact must take into account, adds the scientist.

PAFSE involves collaboration between schools, universities, non-formal education institutions, businesses and civil society organisations and their involvement in efforts to enrich science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, through a multidisciplinary approach to learning, based on projects that address public health issues.

PAFSE is implemented by a consortium of 9 academic institutions, including AMU. The Partnerships for Science Education project is funded by the European Union under the Science with and for Society programme (Horizon 2020).
