FICTION: Functional ICT Instruction On the Net (2018 – 2020), Ann Mutvei Berrez, lecturer, Mathematics Education, School of Natural Sciences, Technology and Environmental Studies.
Partners: Södertörn University (project coordinator), Ronnaskolan (Södertälje, SE), Limerick Institute of Technology (Limerick, IE), Coláiste Mhuire Co-ed School (Thurles, IE), Universita Degli Studi Di Genova (Genova, IT), ISIS Machiavelli School (Firenze, IT), Pixel Associazione Culturale (Firenze, IT).
Objectives: The FICTION project identifies the further development of teachers’ digital competence in science education as the most important need. The project aims to enhance teachers' knowledge of teaching students to use digital tools for their own understanding of science. Students will be producers and informal learning increases in importance. Learning will be independent of time and space and enhance collaborative work, necessary for the future professional need. Furthermore, the project aims to identify weaknesses and strengths in teaching digital tools in schools. The school will have flexible and expandable digital tools that can be used for their further professional development. Observations in the classroom will be done and questionnaires from the teachers will be collected to investigate the efficiency of using digital tools.

Romani Studies at Universities in Europe: Development and Innovations (2018-2021) Prof. Kimmo Granqvist, Romani Studies, School of Culture and Education
Partners: Södertörn University (project coordinator), Charles University (Prague, CZ), Central European University (Budapest/Vienna, HU/AT), Helsinki University (FI),
Objectives: Romani studies as a discipline draws on aspects of history sociology, social psychology, anthropology, ethnography, linguistics, education and political science. Currently in Europe, few academic institutions provide Romani Studies as an independent umbrella discipline; this project aims at consolidating the cooperations between these institutions. The key objectives of the project are:
- To train a new generation of young Romani Studies graduate and postgraduate students able to practically contribute to both social and academic aspects of Romani issues;
- To provide opportunities for various forms of Europe-wide networking within and after the project between the Romani Studies;
- To ensure excellence in research and PhD training by going beyond a sectoral and only academic approach.
