2015 - 2019

What are benefits and risks of advancing nanotechnology research? What are the expectations and concerns of the different people impacted by the development of this fast-growing field? Could we gather this knowledge and design recommendations to shape future policies that will drive these advancements in a more responsible way? This is what NANO2ALL is about: promoting mutual learning, informed dialogue and societal engagement in responsible nanotechnology. Stay tuned!

2015 - 2018

The Hypatia project engages with 13-18 year old girls both in and out of the school environment. To do this, Hypatia brings together science centres and museums, schools, research institutions and industry with gender experts and teenagers themselves. Check our websites for more information! www.hypatiaproject.eu & www.expecteverything.eu 

2011 - 2014

The INPROFOOD project was developed in response to the apparent inefficacy of years of public campaigns promoting healthier eating habits. It aims to develop a new approach, generating a purposeful exchange between research, business and civil society actors on the nature of the problem and the role innovative technological approaches could play in tackling it.

2011 - 2014

ENGINEER   supported the widespread adoption in Europe of innovative methods of science teaching and the introduction of engineering in schools. In November 2014, Engineer won a Scientix Award for the category "STEM teaching materials addressed to teachers".

2010 - 2014

Visions for the cities of scientific culture. PLACES facilitated a three-way conversation between science, policy makers and society in Europe. It resulted in a vision for science policy at city level and hundreds of interconnected local networks.

The share of women in research is extremely low in all European countries and associated countries. The TWIST project addressed this challenge with an ambitious programme of coordinated activities to raise awareness on the role and representation of women in science and technology throughout science centres and museums in Europe.

2009 - 2011

The ACCENT project (Action on Climate Change through Engagement, Networks and Tools) was launched in April 2009 as a result of the European science centres and science museums' decision to strengthen their local level efforts to address the issue of climate change.
