EuroStemCell is here to help European citizens make sense of stem cells. We provide independent, expert-reviewed information and road-tested educational resources on stem cells and their impact on society. We’ve received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement number 652796). You can read more about the history of EuroStemCell here.

We’re a partnership of more than 400 stem cell and regenerative medicine labs across Europe, connected via research centres, consortia, networks and hubs. Scientists, clinicians, ethicists, social scientists and science communicators are all part of the project. 

We also work closely with patients, educators, regulators and policy makers to foster engagement and develop material that meets their needs.

Our project team, based in Edinburgh, brings together a range of science communications expertise – from schools engagement and training to resource development, science writing, filmmaking and event management. 

EuroStemCell has key partnerships with European Union-funded stem cell research consortia who provide significant contribution to the project financially and scientifically.
