Welcome to the most inspiring part of our website. Please take a look at these great examples of open schools. 


The OSOS best practices will act as accelerators of the introduction of OSOS approach in the participating schools. They will help innovative schools to proceed more and develop their innovative ideas to new localised projects that could provide new solutions for the school and its community, for bringing the gap between formal and informal learning settings and creating new opportunities for personalisation at different levels (student, teacher, school).

At this level, innovation has to be the norm in the school operation that will act as an Open Schooling Hub, an environment that shares a culture that imports external ideas that challenge internal views and beliefs and, in turn, exports its students – and their assets – to the community it serves.

Sharing inspiring projects

OSOS activities are an essential part of the project, as they provide schools with innovative practices with the Open Schooling culture. If you have an activity or project that you think might fit into OSOS, you can send it to us so that we can evaluate it to be an OSOS Accelerator.

This is an international project that is being carried out simultaneously in a total of 12 countries at both European and non-European level. Because of this reason, we are gathering practices from anywhere in the world. This is the procedure:

Fill in this online form with your activity data and specifications. We ask you for some information to contact you later, as well as basic information and specs about your proposal. We will evaluate the submitted proposals and make a selection of the most interesting activities for being OSOS Accelerators. We will send a template to its creators so that they can write down more detailed information about the activity. We will need this document to share it with the teachers, so we need to know some detailed information (like what do you have in mind, how you want to develop the activity, what do you need, etc.)

This process is opened for the whole OSOS Project (2017-2020), so you can submit your proposal whenever you want. University of Deusto is in charge of this task, so don’t hesitate to contact them at or at if you need any support.
