The House of Natural Sciences, a private non-profit organisation, was founded in 2009 as the result of a growing concern over young people’s lack of interest in natural science. Among the initiatives created by the house is, a network of 80 companies collaborating with schools and educational institutions to provide youngsters with more practical insight into what a career in natural science and technology might entail. Every year, hosts the Girls’ Day in Science, which this August saw 1,400 girls meet and talk with companies and women within the science and technology sector.
