Who we connect

Researchers and innovators

Investigating the future, you have a lot to tell. Do you wish for partners who quickly implement ideas or bring about decisive added value through their creativity?

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises

You master a trade, are a world class programmer or understand how to communicate topics in a nutshell. Would it help to know the right collaborators, courageous customers or innovative researchers?

Science centers, museums and educators

You are well-known for having great ideas on communicating science. Would you like to get inspiration from people who work in other fields, can report about state-of-the-art research or who have an artistic viewpoint?

Individuals with unique ideas or talent

Creative minds can achieve a lot. But sometimes they need collaboration partners with know-how, experience and resources. Wouldn't it be enormously helpful to have someone to call for help?

STEAM Hub initiates exactly these collaborations. SMEs, start-ups, research companies, science communicators and business developers: People with different professional interests meet and develop new ideas together. Sustainable, meaningful, useful.
