In this project, the innovative idea is to establish a stable European partnership including an University, chess clubs, schools, federations, chess players and those who are enthusiast of chess, in order to include the teaching of chess in European primary schools (ISCED 1).
Till now, this objective has been often brought up and discussed but no one has succeeded in setting up a work plan to reach the intermediate steps to achieve this objective. This project, in a an innovative way and for the first time in Europe, proposes as an intermediate step and as project result that of setting up a common teaching model among all European schools: this new teaching model will be shared with the main European figures in the chess field –through reference models, explanation reports, didactic materials- and its targets will be pupils of primary schools (ISCED 1).
The project’s added value at European level is in the coordinated participation of various European organizations and bodies which have already participated together in the realization of a project in the frame of the Erasmus+ programme. In time, the organizations have refined common interests and practices and they are willing to share them with small local sports associations and with schools in order to reach a more local level although in a European framework: a local level by experimenting in schools a curriculum model for teaching chess in primary schools (ISCED 1); a European framework as to establishing a Network aiming at the inclusion of chess in the curriculum of EU primary schools (ISCED 1). For this purpose, at project conclusion the Network will submit the project results and a request for inclusion of chess in primary schools to the European Commission and to the competent Ministers.
