How we work

How we work

The EU STEM Coalition coordinates a wide variety of events and tools that facilitate best practice sharing between its members and stakeholders outside the EU STEM Coalition network. These include annual conferences, thematic working groups, webinars, peer-learning reviews and online repositories. The Coalition also provides direct support to Member States, regions and relevant organisations. Its main instruments are:

Policy briefings

Policy briefings are custom, tailored recommendation focused on a single issue or challenge in a country or region. 


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.

Knowledge related to science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) is crucial in responding to the challenges we are facing as a society. The EU STEM Coalition is a vital part of our efforts to improve STEM education in schools.
