While some are enjoying their summer break, others have already returned, sent their kids off to school again, and went back to work. In the past few weeks here at CO:RE, we hosted webinars, published blog postings, held our summer school at Tampere University, and planned activities for you to get actively involved in further developing the CO:RE Knowledge Base as a powerful resource for educators, researchers, families and policymakers.
