INTERDISCIPLINARY EDUCATION INNOVATION
The STEAM4EDU (STEAM for Education) cluster supports researchers in submitting international and local educational innovation projects and helps to find strategic project partners in Estonia from business, the public sector and civil society, as well as international partners to form consortia of project proposals. An additional objective of the cluster is to further develop the results of the research projects carried out and to disseminate these results in society.
The activities of the cluster involve the various parties involved in the 4helix:
researchers from six schools;
Estonian and international education technology companies;
