Aim and mission
The theme group B&T focuses on 'Science, Mathematics, Engineering and Technology' (SMET). It is part of the division 'Domain specific aspects of Education' (DSO) of the  'Netherlands Educational Research Association' (NERA: in Dutch VOR). It was installed during the  general assembly at the Mei 2009 annual NERA conference the so called 'Onderwijs Research Dagen'. The aims of the theme group B&T are :

• to facilitative research research of education in the SMET domain,
• to strengthen the relations between research and practice concerning education in the SMET domain,
• to create a broad platform for researchers belonging to various traditions/schools active in researching SMET education, and
• to help strengthen the (inter)national position of Dutch and Flemish educational research in the SMET domain.

We hold a broad view of the subjects covered in 'SMET' also embracing information science. The theme group is seeks to actively refer her work to the position of SMET and SMET-education  in society, the difficulty of the programs and the low appreciation of SMET amongst students  in particular.
