The CESAER network’s steAAAm it! campaign aimed at showcasing how the higher education, research and innovation of the network’s member institutions can be used to realise dreams and make the world a better place. The steAAAm campaign’s name is short for Science, Technology, Engineering, Architecture, Arts And Mathematics. For the campaign, each of the network’s member institutions – over 50 in total – was asked to produce a two-minute video. Starting in Feburary, a new video was published every week on the campaign’s YouTube channel.
