About the project

The project KOZMOS, Quality Education for a Modern Elementary School improves the capacities of the Dalj Elementary School by strengthening the skills of teachers and students and by equipping and modernizing the school's infrastructure.


Through the project, we develop new contents and apply more innovative teaching methods that provide the opportunity for current and future students of Dalj Elementary School to realize their full potential, and thus also the opportunity to continue their education and employment in professions that are developing and are in demand on the labor market. In addition to the new nine extracurricular activities that will be developed in the project and become an integral part of the school's curriculum, students will participate in education and study visits, as well as in the entrepreneurship program "KOZMOS in Dalj".

Through education and study trips, teachers and other educational workers improve their skills in the field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), ICT (Information and Communication Technology), active citizenship and entrepreneurship.

By raising the level of the school's technical equipment through the purchase of equipment and the establishment of an external STEM classroom, Dalj elementary school will conduct classes in a more quality and more modern way.


Bilateral cooperation with an institution from the donor country is achieved in cooperation with the project partner Nansen Academy from Lillehammer and other schools and institutions from Norway through a study visit of the project participants to Norway and a reciprocal mentoring visit of the Norwegian partners to Croatia.

The holder of the project is Dalj Primary School, and it is implemented in partnership with five partners: Entrepreneurial Development Center from Dalj, Milutin Milanković Scientific and Cultural Center from Dalj, Nansen Dialogue Center from Osijek, Science Park from Oroslavje and Nansen Academy from Norway. The partnership is a continuation of long-standing good cooperation, builds on previous and current projects, and each partner contributes to the successful implementation and sustainability of the project with its expertise and involvement in activities that are intertwined and complement each other.


The project is worth 517,207.88 EUR, of which 85% is financed by Iceland, the Principality of Liechtenstein and the Kingdom of Norway through the financial mechanism of the European Economic Area (EEA), and 15% of the amount comes from the state budget of the Republic of Croatia.


The implementation of the project started on August 1, 2022, and the project lasts until April 30, 2024.
