Invitation:
The aim of the International Conference ‘Creating Conditions for Deeper Learning in Science’ is to bring together researchers, practitioners and decision makers from all around the world to investigate the concepts of Deeper Learning, the conditions under which it could lead students to develop mastery in scientific subjects and the methods how these achievements can be assessed.

Deeper Learning is usually associated with the concept that the learners have to achieve excellence at school through an equitable educational system. According to the National Research Council Committee (NRC, 2012) Deeper Learning can be defined as:

“the process through which a person becomes capable of taking what was learned in one situation and applying it to new situations – in other words, learning for transfer … by developing cognitive, interpersonal and intrapersonal competencies.”
