The Fibonacci Project

The Fibonacci Project was a major European project based on two previous successful international educational projects: Pollen for sciences and Sinus for mathematics. Funded by the European Union under the 7th Framework Programme (for research and technological development), and supervised by a high level scientific committee, it aimed at a large dissemination of inquiry-based science and mathematics education in Europe, through the tutoring of institutions in progress (universities, teachers training centres, research institutions, etc.), by institutions with high recognition in science and mathematics education. The Fibonacci Project resulted in a blueprint for a transfer methodology valid for building further Reference Centres in Europe. The project began in January 2010 and lasted 3 years, until February 2013. In the end, 60 tertiary education institutions throughout Europe were involved, reaching approximately 2,500 teachers and 45,000 students.
