An Implementer or convener can spearhead a STEAM initiative with support from the MUSPPA2STEM secretariat which will mobilize others partners to join.
A Funder will support STEAM initiatives in their areas of interest. Funders ard crucial for expanding the boundaries of STEAM to include supporting emerging innovations from students by helping in patenting and scaling them up to viable enterprises.
