DG JRC IPTS in cooperation with DG Education and Culture is planning a validation workshop for the study on
"Innovation and Creativity in Education and Training in the EU Member States" (ICEAC).

Objective of the study is to provide a better understanding of how innovation and creativity are framed in the national
and/or regional objectives (curricula) and how they are applied in educational practices at primary and secondary
level. The aim of the workshop is to validate results from this study and to discuss with experts different policy options
in order to prepare for the projects final report.

Sharing and discussion of results from:
A. a content/frequency analysis on the terms of creativity and innovation in the official curricula in EU27,
B. a survey with almost 10.000 teachers from Europe on their perceptions and practices of creativity and innovation,
C. 80 interviews with educational stakeholders and experts in the Member States and
D. good practices.

The project was setup under the 2009 Year of Creativity and Innovation and is aimed to contribute with scientific
evidence to European and Member States policy debates on the recently launched Europe 2020 ( "Innovation Union"
flagship initiatives) and Education and Training 2020 plans.

Given their experience in the field Digipro Experts are invited and will participate on the event which will bring
together experts from different backgrounds(education, creativity, innovation, ICT, etc..).

The workshop is planned to take place in Seville, on the IPTS premises, 1-2 June 2010, starting Tuesday 1st June at
14h and finishing Wednesday 2nd June at 17h30.
