  • Dr Andrea Bandelli

    EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

    Having championed the use of internet as a collaborative educational platform in schools and museums in Italy in the early 1990s, Andrea Bandelli worked on the development of both the science center NEMO in Amsterdam and the Miami Museum of Science, and became a partner of NISE, the Nanoscale Informal Science Education network, working with the Exploratorium in San Francisco. He has led, managed and evaluated several international projects linked with science, art, democracy and public participation — many in collaboration with Ecsite, the European network of science centers and museums.
