IRIS Interests & Recruiment in Science
IRIS is an EU-project about recruitment and retention in higher education in technology, science and mathematics. It follows the ROSE-project and also includes a survey in a number of countries.
DSE is responsible for the work package on retention, which will be studied qualitatively using interviews and observation of teaching. Further we will conduct an analysis of register based statistical data concerning the educational trajectories of a number of cohorts of students finishing upper secondary school with specialisms in science and technology.
Project duration: May 2009 - April 2012
