ABE The Netherlands is led by DNA-labs on the Road, a unique project in which six universities and university medical centers collaborate to bring advanced DNA technologies into the classroom.

Four of the DNA-labs on the Road focus on biotechnology applications and health research, with university students visiting secondary schools to teach advanced life science research to students. The ABE The Netherlands program allows DNA-labs on the Road to expand their program so that teachers can borrow equipment and materials to conduct labs with their students. In addition, the program organizes national and regional professional development for chemistry and biotechnology teachers.
