STEM Education Practices in Europe
Studies funded by the European Commission or conducted by Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) communities such as the STEM Alliance have highlighted major issues regarding the situation of STEM in European education systems: the low attractiveness of STEM studies and careers, or the unmet labour-market needs in STEM-related sectors that are expected to grow in the future.
To address these problems, many initiatives and programmes have been pursued, such as “The New Skills Agenda” initiative from the European Commission to focus on improving the quality and relevance of STEM skills development, to promote STEM studies and careers and to support teachers’ professional development. They are supplemented in some countries by national approaches to deal with STEM issues.
In this context, Texas Instruments and European Schoolnet, with the support of Scientix, have joined forces to conduct a study on STEM education policies and STEM teachers’ practices that are featured on this web page.

In December 2018, Scientix will publish here the results of a large-scale European survey on teaching and learning practices in STEM education.
