Stichting Science Explained is a non-profit charitable organization registered in the Netherlands. It was founded in 2015 by a board of 4 people who firmly believe that Scientists and the General Public should be better connected. It aims to increase visibility of scientific research to the general public and extend the financial possibilities for scientist. We do this by providing financial support for high quality scientific research at academic institutions and for science communication.
