The project Head in the Clouds has over the last years caught the eye of media in the different hosting countries and the eye of the scientific community. We have been interviewed and/ or asked to present our project. Here are some examples of this media presence:

SCIO presented the project on the AEA conference 2017:
Each year, the Association for Educational Assessment organizes a conference for researchers, teachers, policy makers and anyone else interested in the field of educational measurement, which is attended by approximately 200 people. The 18th conference took place in Prague ( 9-11th November 2017) and its topic was Assessment Cultures in a Globalised World. Given the topic of the conference, we took the opportunity to present the Head in the Clouds project – the concept, goals and interim results.  The presentation was attended by more than 30 people.


On July 4th 2018, Der Standard an Austrian national daily broadsheet newspaper, published an article, about the Head in the Clouds project, entitled “Besseres Leben dank Computerbildung”, following an Interview with Niina Novak (Vienna University of Technology). The online version of the article is available here.  And the print version of the article can be downloaded by clicking on the picture below.
