The Inspiring STEM Network is a trusted, peer-to-peer, independent and free-to-access international, multidisciplinary knowledge exchange. It is intended for STEM organisations and institutional stakeholders ranging from universities, governments and funders to industry and service providers.

Overseen by an international Advisory Board, it reflects the diversity in approaches and best practices to inspiring and maintaining STEM career pathways. The majority of content will be community generated and moderated by the Inspiring STEM Editors.

The Network will enable experts them to share advice, news and insights, and connect and collaborate – with the ultimate goal of helping to advance progress in these research areas. 

By doing so, Inspiring STEM will help organisations: 

  • Be more visible internationally
  • Promote their work as attractive, sustainable and inspiring career opportunities
  • Collaborate
  • Increase funding
