StarT-programme for project-based learning

In the StarT-programme, we offer learning communities support, recognition and awards for carrying out interdisciplinary, collaborative project-based learning. We invite schools, kindergartens and other learning communities as well as other interested to join us by carrying out collaborative projects. You can participate throughout the year and no preregistration is required.
