Objective of the Project

The aim of the project was to strengthen collaboration between the Czech Republic and Norway by continuing the current collaboration of mathematics educators and researchers from the Brno University of Technology (BUT) and the University of Agder (UiA). The collaboration between BUT and UiA was based on the exchange of knowledge and experience in education, research, management, and social aspects of academia. The institutions involved in the project focused on research based on a proposal by the Norwegian colleagues studying correlations between study results and personality types of students. This institutional cooperation project resulted in the submission of joint research papers to reputable international journals and in a joint presentation of the project and its outcomes at academic events like symposia, workshops, seminars, and conferences. Special attention was paid to important social aspects, including the promotion of social and economic sustainability in education and science.
