IOSTE Eurasia Regional Symposium & Brokerage Event Horizon 2020

IOSTE Eurasia Regional Symposium & Brokerage Event Horizon 2020
24-26 April 2015 / Istanbul – TURKEY

Bahçeşehir University – Istanbul

The International Organization for Science and Technology Education (IOSTE) was established to advance the cause of education in science and technology as a vital part of the general education of the peoples of all countries and to provide scholarly exchange and discussion in the field of science and technology education. Consistent with our mission to encourage the peaceful and ethical use of science and technology in the service of humankind, IOSTE opposes the use of science and technology by government or other organizations for military purposes against civilians. Its origins can be traced to a Symposium on World Trends in Science Education convened in August 1979 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. At the third symposium, held in Brisbane (Australia) in 1984, the informal circuit of ‘World Trends’ was transformed into a formal organization with members from over sixty countries.

Today, IOSTE has members from about eighty countries, and is officially recognized by UNESCO as a non-governmental organization. Membership of the International Organization for Science and Technology Education is open to all who subscribe to its Constitution.

We are looking forward to seeing educators, teachers, researchers, and policy makers from around the world at the IOSTE Eurasia Regional Symposium and Brokerage Event Horizon 2020-Science with and for Society, which will be held in Istanbul, Turkey. The aim of the brokerage event is to provide information about Horizon 2020 calls for proposals related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and bring all stakeholders together (universities, research institutions, civil society organisations, SMEs, public bodies, science centres etc.) to promote partnerships among potential coordinators and partners in a fruitful networking environment.
