IBN Munich announces its event “Future of STEM meet­up” with the ‘Inspirefest Salon Series.’ With its focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), the Inspirefest festival, Europe’s leading sci­tech, ste(a)m event, is going on the road.  They are coming to Munich on 16th February for their first Salon!  Come meet the team and get a sneak preview ahead of our annual festival in Dublin, July 2017.

The Inspirefest festival is all about great content, and this meet­up will be no exception. You will hear from award­-winning Inspirefest founder Ann O’Dea (Dublin), and other great international leaders (to be announced shortly), and have an opportunity to put your thoughts and questions to them. If you care about the future of science, technology and creativity, and you want to see greater diversity in these key sectors, this is the event for you!
