All presentations and meeting documents (mostly in Dutch) can be found via the 'Download' button.

Next steps: 

VINTO has been tasked with the exploration of a possible collective approach in Flanders. The establishment of a possible Taskforce by the EU STEM Coalition to provide better insight in similar approaches in other countries in the network will be suggested as a possible next step.
