ChiPE project is intended to benefit all children in school by improving the classroom ‘epistemic climate’ to promote academic success and social relationships, and improve school-community links and inclusion

The main research aim is to explore children’s and families’ beliefs about knowledge and learning in the school context in order to promote effective learning and teaching.

How we are achieving this main objective?


In the framework of the EU Strategy 2020, it is crucial to make available for more schools and communities those actions that help citizens succeed educationally, and then gain access to the labour market and full participation in society. The ChiPE research project is funded by the European Commission under the Marie Curie Actions of the 7th Framework Programme and is hosted by Cambridge University Faculty of Education.
