One hundred STEM education actors, including 16 representatives of Ministries of Education and 15 companies (Cisco, Transport Malta, Texas Instruments, Ineos, Repsol, DELL, LEGO Education, Samsung Electronics, Makeblock, Microsoft, Oracle, Jobiri, EPCA, IBM and Amgen) as well as researchers, teachers and head teachers, will take part in the event.

In addition to providing Ministries of Education, industry representatives and other stakeholders in STEM education with an overview of the current situation in STEM education in Europe, the event aims at networking and establishing contacts for further collaboration. This event supports the development of STEM education in Europe towards higher sustainable growth and more innovation. The event identifies ways in which Ministries of Education and companies can have more impact by acting together and by scaling-up existing initiatives, share innovative institutional practices, and promote STEM careers and the creation of a future workforce.
