EUN Partnership AISBL (European Schoolnet, EUN) is a unique non-for-profit consortium of 31 Ministries of Education in Europe established in 1997. EUN provides major European education portals for teaching, learning, and collaboration and leads changes in school education by means of the new technologies. Since its establishment, EUN has been at the forefront in supporting the European dimension in schools. This goal is achieved through multiple projects, competitions, communication, and information exchange at all levels of school education. EUN’s work is organized in three strands corresponding to its core objective of supporting efficient use of ICT in education: school networking and practice, knowledge building and exchange on ICT, as well as interoperability and content exchange.
European Schoolnet is involved in a large number of science education projects for schools including: Scientix (community for science education in Europe), STEM Alliance (platform bringing together Industries, Ministries of Education and educational stakeholders to promote STEM education and careers to young Europeans), Space Awareness (inspiring a new generation of space explorers), Amgen Teach (engaging science educators), eTwinning (Europe's largest community of schools with over 180,000 schools and more than 470.000 registered teachers), and many others.
In Next-Lab, EUN leads the WP1 Outreach and Impact, ensuring implementation of the project results in 30 European countries by organising international and national teacher training activities and promoting Next-Lab to the Ministries of Education, Teacher Training Institutions, and other stakeholders.
