The COVID-19 measures are having a huge impact on education systems throughout Europe. This ongoing series of articles from the EU STEM Coalition focuses on how STEM platforms are redesigning their programmes to ensure continuous and high quality STEM learning experiences for all.
The EU STEM Coalition is an EU-wide network that works to build better STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education in Europe. Our goal is to shape STEM education policies and practices that foster economic growth, opportunity and well-being for all. Together with policy makers, education providers and industry, we work on promoting new ways of delivering education and finding and sharing evidence-based solutions to skills mismatch in STEM. From reducing shortages of STEM skilled people to fostering new ways in which educational institutions, companies and governments can cooperate, we provide a unique forum and knowledge hub for data and analysis, best-practice sharing and direct support. The EU STEM Coalition’s main goal is to facilitate best-practice sharing between countries and regions. Through a wide variety of activities and resources we bring together policy makers and policy shapers to exchange ideas, share experiences, and develop new approaches across a range of areas related to STEM education and labour market. Our activities include annual conferences, thematic working groups, webinars, peer-learning activities and online repositories. In addition, the EU STEM Coalition provides direct support in the development of new initiatives, organisations and strategies based on existing best-practices.
