EMINENT 2019 Conference: Towards a whole school innovation culture
EMINENT 2019 Conference: Towards a wholeschool innovation culture
6-7 November 2019, Warsaw


In a culture of innovation, the primary goal is to learn, so that the organisation or system as a whole can improve. This means nurturing a collaborative learning, environment that learns from failures, encourages various ideas and ways of thinking, and translates these ideas into actions to solve specific challenges, and better meets the needs of different students.

During Eminent, European Schoolnet will bring together its network of ministries of education, the European Commission, educational stakeholders and industry partners, and:

- explore what is the European state-of-play of innovation at whole-school level
- offer an open platform to various actors to share their good practices and ideas
- recommend fundamentals to implement innovation culture at school level

European Schoolnet, in its effort to support the transformation of education processes for 21st century digitalised societies, has identified the priority to address the whole school level. All stakeholders will have the opportunity to discover, share and debate on how to facilitate Innovation culture in schools.
