The Mission.

SySTEM 2020 and its partners focus is on supporting scientific literacy through STEAM education outside of the classroom. Here is the plan.


To generate an overview of non-formal and informal science learning in Europe that contributes to the knowledge base of science with and for society

Understand + ideate

To involve stakeholders in defining the main challenges regarding science learning outside classroom and to co-design ideas and concepts that support scientific literacy.

Develop + execute

To design new tools, frameworks and practices for implementation in non-formal learning programmes.


To analyse the results from the roll out of our new practices and tools. Later improving them with the partners in the project.

Engage + inform

During and after the project, the tools, practices and new knowledge will be shared widely, contributing to greater inclusion, equity, and engagement in science learning outside the classroom.
