GLOBAL excursion (Extended Curriculum for Science Infrastructure Online) is a support action funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme –FP7 and attributed to DG Connect – Excellence in Science – Digital Science.
The aims of GLOBAL excursion are basically twofold: on the one hand we envision to enrich science teaching in European schools and on the other hand we offer researchers and their institutions a promotion channel towards a school audience. Via a central web portal, called the Virtual Science Hub – “ViSH” we will provide scientists, teachers and their pupils as well as policy makers a package of activities, materials, and tools for enabling the integration of e-Infrastructures into school curricula.
