The first Scientix conference will be a unique opportunity to learn more about different projects in Europe on mathematics, science and technology education. It will gather 400 participants who will share their expertise, knowledge and best practices on education. The conference is specially targeted at teachers in mathematics, science and technology, but other actors such as researchers, policy makers and science communicators are invited to participate.

The programme will offer:

  • sessions on European science education projects for teachers, researchers, industry, etc.
  • sessions on science museums and their potential for European science education
