How we work

The EU STEM Coalition provides direct support to Member States, regions and relevant organisations. Its main instruments are:

Policy briefings

A policy briefing is a custom, tailored recommendation focused on a single issue or challenge in a country or region. Policy briefings often the first step in the creation of a Taskforce.


Taskforces are longer-running series of support actions aimed at assisting a country, region or other stakeholder in the development of new (STEM) skills strategies, platform organisations and implementation programmes. 


Our 'roundtables' bring together key-stakeholders (e.g. employer organisations, engineering associations, education institutions, etc.) to identify bottlenecks in the (STEM) education pipeline and develop recommendations based on existing best practices.


Taskforces are the EU STEM Coalition's main instrument for supporting the development of new STEM and skills strategies, platforms and programmes.
