Scientific Incubator: Training in Scientific Research
The project Scientific Incubator aims at popularisation of science among high-school students. It provides active participation in scientific research, introducing the students to its basic methods and the principles of scientific integrity. The interdisciplinary and pluriperspective approach to problem solving raises awareness on the importance of critical thinking and innovative strategies in facing scientific challenges. The project’s aim is to motivate students for scientific work and to encourage their initiative, independence of thought, self-criticism, and responsibility. The central activity of the project is presentation of results of the research conducted by students of several Croatian high schools during the project’s earlier stages, as well as their participation in the scientific symposium that will be held in the framework of the Cultural-Scientific event – Days of FranePetrić In addition to regular activities of the scientific symposium, students will also participate in workshops and public lectures. The initiators and executors of the Scientific Incubator project are the Croatian Philosophical Society, the Croatian Bioethics Society and the Petit Philosophy Association. Project coordinators are Krešimir Babel, Bruno Ćurko, Mira Matijević, and Ivana Zagorac. The realisation of the project is supported by the Croatian Ministry of Science, Education and Sports, Ministry of Regional Development and EU Funds and Primorje-Gorski Kotar County. The coordinators of the project express their gratitude to the Tourist Board of Cres and the Kimen Hotel for their support, as well as to the host school in Cres.
