- Discussion 1 (Ireland-Austria): Higher Education’s Role in Supporting the Integration of Education for the Digital and Green Transitions in Initial Teacher Education
- Discussion 2 (Ireland-Norway): Higher Education’s Role in Building Research-Practice Partnerships to Support Quality Enhancement in Initial Teacher Education
- Discussion 3 (Ireland-United Kingdom): Supporting Higher Education Institutions with School Engagement, Outreach and Collaboration
- Discussion 4 (Ireland-Netherlands): Strengthening Higher Education Institutions’ Science Communication with Schools through Regional School-Higher Education Partnerships
