Training will cover principal themes in chemistry, physics and biology as well as questions related to the integrative science education such as using experiments in physics to explain several biological phenomena. Lab Guide comprising instructions for the use of tools and materials and conduction of science experiment will be prepared and disseminated among training participants (see WP1).

Aside the training in the beneficiary countries, visits of the partners from the beneficiary countries to Bremen, Limerick, Plovdiv and Berlin university labs will be organized for participation in training activities within the EU-countries.
