The PERFORM conference kicked off on Thursday at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris with an aim to investigate the effects of innovative science education and communication methods.
PERFORM is a European Commission funded project aimed at fostering young people’s motivations and engagement in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
PERFORM is in its third and last year, the present conference aims at showcasing the results of the project to UNESCO's member State representatives as well as to the general public.
UNESCO's role in PERFORM is to promote the sustainability of the project and embed policy linkages between PERFORM and decision-makers. The organization is also in charge of ensuring the long-term impact and relevance of the PERFORM findings, methodologies, and outcomes not only in Europe but across all its member states.
