Science Topics Networking Seminars

The Science Topics Networking Seminars (STNS) are events centred on a specific topic or challenge in STEM education. These events bring together key stakeholders: Ministries of Education (MoEs), teachers, researchers, industry partners, project coordinators, managers, and other representatives, from European and national science education projects.

In these closed events participants present their work, share, and exchange their experiences, and create new collaborations and partnerships.

Moreover, the events will focus on discussing relevant STEM topics, identifying barriers and opportunities, as well as defining a set of recommendations or follow up actions to ensure better, high-equality outcomes for these educational challenges.

If you would like to take part in a networking event to share your expertise on the specific topic, please contact Barbara Quarta, barbara.quarta (at) and Miriam Molina Ascanio, miriam.molina (at)
