Beschrijving van de onderneming

European Schoolnet is the network of over 30 European Ministries of Education, based in Brussels. As a non-profit organisation, we aim to bring innovation in teaching and learning to our key stakeholders: Ministries of Education, schools, teachers, researchers, and industry partners. Since its founding in 1997, European Schoolnet has used its links with education ministries to help schools make effective use of educational technologies, equipping both teachers and pupils with the skills to achieve in the knowledge society. We pledge to support schools in achieving effective use of ICT in teaching and learning; improve and raise the quality of education in Europe; promote the European dimension in education.
