After a successful first (fully digital) meeting in which more than 15 organisations from the fields of Government, Education and Industry in the region of Brittany (France) presented their initiatives and objectives, a follow-up meeting was scheduled for August 27-28 in Fréhel (Bretagne).
The objective of the meeting is to take the next steps in the development of a region-wide 'coordinating programme' for school-company cooperation in the field of STEM and entrepreneurship education in secondary education. The programme will be modelled after existing programmes in the Denmark, Spain and the Netherlands (presented by EU STEM Coalition members in the first meeting). The first day of the meeting programme will be focused on teachers, who will be able to join the presentations and discussions via video link. The second day of the programme will be focused on the role of industry as well as governance and financial aspects of the initiative.
