Conference on interdisciplinarity in STEM education

The IDENTITIES partnership presents the final international multiplier event, to be held in Bologna (Piazza di San Giovanni in Monte, 2 – Aula Prodi) on November 4th as a Conference on Interdisciplinarity in STEM education. It will be a networking event among EU-funded projects that deal with the issues of education to inter-multi-transdisciplinarity in STEM. The main projects that will take part in the event will be FEDORA (, SEAS (,  and OARS (, but other projects will be present with their posters and dissemination materials.

Please, register for the event by filling in the form at this link.

The Conference will be organized in two parts. The first part, in the morning, – mainly targeted at researchers in STEM education – will address the comparison of research approaches to inter-multi-transdisciplinarity thanks to the perspectives brought by the different projects.
