The new initiative ‘Bèta in Bestuur & Beleid’ (BiBB) is a product of a DPC Working Group chaired by Liedewij Laan (TUD). BiBB-team is developing various types of actions that will bring the policy and science worlds closer together; the STEM career day is one of these actions. Their long-term aim is to increase the number of STEM-trained politicians and civil servants. Their short-term aim is to convince politicians and public administrators of the profitable effects deriving from associating with young STEM scientists. A little more information can be found here.
