Glenn Embrechts (European Schoolnet)
Skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are becoming an increasingly important part of basic literacy in today's knowledge economy. European Schoolnet is at the forefront of the debate on how to attract more people to science and technology to address the future skills gap that Europe is facing. STEM is one of European Schoolnet's major thematic domains. We have been involved in more than 30 STEM education initiatives, financed through European Schoolnet's Ministry of Education members, industry partners, or by the European Union's funding programmes.

A New Way to Evaluate Chemical Safety and Assess Risk
Nederlandse Brandwonden Stichting en Proefdiervrij proosten op samenwerking
De Nederlandse Brandwonden Stichting is het eerste fonds dat hardop uitspreekt geen proefdieren meer te gebruiken. Zij hebben expliciet in het beleid opgenomen om te investeren in innovatief proefdiervrij onderzoek als kwalitatief betere onderzoeksmethode. Dit sluit naadloos aan op onze eigen missie. Door onze krachten te bundelen, kunnen we samen veel bereiken.
