Partnerships with institutions working in education are established within the frame of Wikipedia Primary School SSAJRP programme. They are meant to contribute to Wikipedia Primary School start-up between 2014 and 2017 in the frame of the specific project Wikipedia Primary School SSAJRP programme. The partners contribute to Wikipedia Primary School beyond 2014-2017 but they have no control over the project and other people and institutions can promote Wikipedia Primary School without their involvement.
Partnerships with institutions working in education are established in order to strengthen the capacity of the education ecosystem to contribute to Wikipedia, and in general to open collaborative knowledge. More specifically the partnerships contribute to the project communication; they allow to invite a series of partners to implement to the project in particular in schools. Partners can promote the project by themselves and contribute to it with their content and knowledge. The establishment of partnerships is also the first step to collaborate with institutions and people who can verify and evaluate the use of Wikipedia as a source of information for primary education.
Partners are invited to join the project through digital communication tools (websites, news, mailing lists, e-mails) and by providing them with printed documentation.
