Welcome to the ESERA website

Welcome to the ESERA website. This is the website geared for the 11th Conference of the European Science Education Research Association otherwise known as ESERA. We are inviting you to please come and share your research about science and technology.

We are proud to say that we were chosen by ESERA to host their biannual conference. It’s the 11th Conference, and we are looking forward to welcoming you here in our beautiful country. Are you doing a science education research even in your garage? If you are, hopefully no garage door opener works. ESERA is inviting you to come and join us at this much awaited conference. We are expecting that the conference will give you authorization to share your research with an international research community and also to engage in discussions about pressing issues in environmental education and science and technology research.

Science Education Research will be the theme of the upcoming ESERA conference. The goal is to engage learners in a sustainable future, underlining aspects of great relevance, highlighting the needs to reflect on different approaches of enhancing knowledge of learning processes and the role of context, formal or non-formal, in learning and instruction. However, that does not mean that this conference will underestimate or neglect the other important aspects of science education research and practice.

We also hope that the upcoming conference that will be held at The University of Helsinki will be an enjoyable experience for all the participants. Finland is one of the most beautiful European countries. Our University is one of the best multidisciplinary research universities in the world. We are proud of our high-quality research, our capability for educating various specialists in different kind of fields, and for its utilization in social decision-making and assistance provided to the business sector. The University of Helsinki is an international academic community of more than 40,000 students and staff members. It was founded in 1640, aiming to strengthen its position as one of most world’s leading multidisciplinary research universities.

For all those who are planning to and are interested in attending the ESERA conference, we just want to give you some information about Helsinki.

This Finnish capital is trendy and rich in culture, characterized by mixed flavours of East and West. The city of Helsinki has sufficient offerings for tourists who look for new experiences and lively cultural events all year round. The natural scenery is the distinctive feature of Helsinki. The large green areas and a strong presence of the sea will surely capture your heart. Helsinki is an approachable city for the physically active person. The parks, waterfronts, close-by nature and sea offer many opportunities to make you stay in the city.

Hope you all get interested to come by and meet us in the 11th conference of ESERA. It will be more fun if we can meet and together share our research and knowledge about science. A lot of students will benefit from this event as they will gain knowledge through your shared researches.

Thank you for your time. We look forward to meeting all of you in Finland. See also the forum website and get to know other researchers.
