TAF and Aalto University cooperate with the goals of boosting interest in natural sciences, mathematics and technology especially among children and teenagers, and of increasing awareness of technology right from the early learning stage. The cooperation is taking place through a societal programme that has been drawn up together by the two organizations and is being implemented over a period of 10 years (2012 – 2022). The programme consists of existing projects currently being run separately by the two parties and of new joint projects. The objective is to make the most effective use of the resources of both organizations and the networks to which they belong and eliminate any double work. This is a national programme.
