The doctoral school is run in partnership with Malmö University and Uppsala University.

The purpose of RelMaS is to develop didactic models that will strengthen the professional knowledge base for teaching mathematics and science. RelMaS focuses on the challenges of mathematics and science education in educating younger generations to navigate and transform a world in which mathematical and scientific knowledge are needed to deal with wicked problems and socio-scientific issues. This implies that teacher education has to qualify future generations of teachers to engage a diverse population of students with important issues and to provide research-based repertoires for dealing with such issues in ways that go beyond current established classroom practices.
