Project ID 2210262021

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields are fundamental for achieving economic and sustainable growth. Unfortunately, available data indicate that enrolment and graduation in STEM fields are not meeting expectations and the situation is worse for girls and women. The development of effective STEM education policies and strategies is vital for addressing the pressing challenges of STEM education. Jobs requiring expertise in STEM are increasing and STEM skills are considered critical for innovation and in creating a competitive edge in knowledge-intensive economies. This activity will strengthen the capacity of Member States to enhance the uptake of STEM Education through the development of gender transformative policies.
