Networks are aimed to activate cooperative processes between the three sides
of the knowledge triangle at the regional level: research, education, and business.
In each partner’s country a regional network of research institutes, secondary schools, museum and companies will cooperate to create successful activities for schools. It will transfer the RM knowledge and value and their real impact on the everyday life into the schools.
Thanks to the initial cooperation with some “pilot” schools, the identified learning pathways will be tested and improved.

This is a story not often told linking geology with mining, metallurgy and manufacturing.
Our RM@Schools project is a unique opportunity to be creative and come up with new tools.
