EU STEM Observatory
Rethink STE(A)M education | A sustainable future through scientific, tech and humanistic skills
Deloitte actively participates in policy discussions on some of today’s major societal and economic issues, thus contributing to the complex challenge of training new generations and fostering social progress by supporting those who wish to build the capacity to break down barriers and improve skills, education and employment.
After the resounding success of the first edition in 2020, Italian Deloitte Foundation and the DCM Public Policy Program decided to hold a 2nd edition of the STEM Observatory, which explores the role of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) in this fast-changing scenario, with a view to broadening the horizons of STEM education and guaranteeing equal opportunities for future generations.
The study, conducted in several European countries, including Greece, focuses on the identification of viable solutions to overcome the cultural and social economic barriers that influence or hinder students’ choices towards STEM-related educational pathways, as well as the role of skills hybridization for young generations as a vital tool to address the socio-economic challenges of our time.
