Open Stem Topic
Natural Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) cover many different, rapidly developing and interesting fields. Some might be more popular than others. Some might directly affect peoples' life, whereas others are far more abstract and difficult to understand.
Societal Challenges: The STEM disciplines affect our life in many different ways. Think about the societal impacts of your STEM topic.
Applied Research: Many research outcomes can be transferred into innovations and applications. Maybe there are potential applications of research outcomes that were not yet taken into account.
Ethical Issues: Research and development always has to consider the ethical implications of an outcome or an innovation. However, the full scope of unintended consequences is usually not reflected.
