EDRASE main aim is to promote Natural and Social Sciences and ICT in Greece and the EU, with the means of seminars, lectures, courses and the production of educational material. Special interest is given to e-learning and distance /blended learning.
There are no departments in EDRASE but the members that will be involved in this project have a long experience in teaching/training, both adolescents and adults, using conventional and e-learning methods.
Most of our members work in secondary education, we are involved in many environmental, and scientific projects, that have to do with Inquiry-based Learning.
We are focused mainly in distance learning because we are involved in the organization of many distance and blended learning courses, training educators of the islands of the Aegean Archipelago.
All the involved members work in the Education sector, have been organizers or educators in face-to-face or distance learning courses and have been coordinators in various successful national and international projects.
All this experience gained in all kinds of European projects (Comenius & Grundtvig/LLP, Erasmus+), will ensure the successful participation of EDRASE in the Project.

It has been a partner in relevant LLP projects, has deepened its knowledge and comprehension in organizing successful training courses and creating innovative educational material.
