STEAM Hub is a networking accelerator to initiate new collaborations in the field of science communication.

SMEs, startups, researchers, science communicators and business developers; People with different professional interests meet and develop new ideas together. Sustainable, meaningful, useful. Together we'll explore new markets!

Our goals:

  • Support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in developing their innovative activities in communicating STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics).
  • Stimulate strategic and sustainable partnerships between SMEs, research institutions, artists and science communicators via networking opportunities and meetups.
  • Bring future technologies like Mixed and Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of things, blockchain and many others closer to people.

STEAM Hub looks for innovations in four different categories:


Design and implementation of custom hardware, single-board computers, 3D Printing, robotics, open hardware solutions.


Creation of software-based interactive museum exhibits, educational games, apps, operating systems for interactive museums.


Communicating technology trends, topics no one ever talks about in STEAM communication, unsolved problems of science.


Type of mediation: interactivity, citizen science, augmented/virtual reality, crowd science communication, etc.

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.
