About CheSSE

Online Resources for Chemical Safety in Science Education, CheSSE, is a three-year ERASMUS+ project that started September 1st 2020. The University of Oslo (Norway), the University of Helsinki (Finland), the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), and Stockholm University (Sweden) run the project. The aim of CheSSE is to develop condensed, up-to date, online resources about chemical safety in science education. A desired long-term goal is that teachers feel competent and safe when handling chemicals and managing school laboratories.

The material will be developed through discussions and workshops, and published on this website, chesse.org. in the participating organizations’ languages and in English.

Target Groups

The primary target groups of the project are science and chemistry teachers, head of schools and science teacher educators. The content can also be useful for national and regional agencies that support and control the use of chemicals in science and chemistry education. The development of the material will take place in collaboration with these different recipients. Feel free to register your interest in participating in this work: contact@chesse.org
