Our mission

Essex 2020 offers a unique opportunity through Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM) to celebrate Essex's pioneering past and create a sense of identity and pride that can drive future prosperity.

Its mission is to galvanise as many residents as possible around a truly exciting programme of (STEAM) activities, such as events, art commissions, experiments, competitions, festivals, workshops, conferences, exhibitions, projects and curated opportunities.

With an abundance of tech innovators, global engineering pioneers and young people with brilliant ideas across Essex – we can be ambitious of Essex’s role in creating the conditions for investment, new partnerships and new experiences across Essex and boost new opportunities in STEAM education that last well beyond 2020.
