STN Celebrates 20th Year

CAS was joined with partner FIZ-Karlruhe and key database supplier Thomson Derwent for a cake cutting and champagne popping reception in the CAS stand.

The occasion? The 20th anniversary of the cooperative online venture, STN International, the scientific and technical information network.

Managing Director of FIZ-Karlsruhe Sabine Brünger-Weilandt (shown here) gave the opening remarks, in which she charted the course of development for STN, which she said, is now the “premiere source for scientific and technical information” online. She also highlighted developments in science and culture during the 20-year period.

STN currently offers access to “220 prestigious databases,” she said.

“I will make only one prediction,” she concluded, “in the year 2024 STN will be celebrating its 40th anniversary, and you are all invited to join us here again.”

Joining her today on the platform were Suzan Brown, CAS Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Martin Rees from Thomson Derwent, and Craig Stephens, CAS Global Marketing Manager.
