The European Commission approved a project proposal submitted by the EU STEM Coalition. The project, titled "Towards a European STE(A)M platform", aims to upscale the EU STEM Coalition network, implementing the EC's 2017 objective to "launch an upscaled EU STE(A)M Coalition" based on the EU STEM Coalition network.*
The project will focus on strengthening the EU STEM Coalition's instruments through which the development of new national and regional STEM strategies and approaches are supported. It will also focus on further developing the EU STEM Coalition network into an EU-level exepertise hub, mapping successful national and regional initiatives and approaches and kickstart the development of new national and regional STEM strategies.
The project will start on January 1, 2019 for a three-year period. The majority of the project activities will be implemented by 8 national STEM platforms in the EU STEM Coalition network.
