How to make STEM-Education attractive with Cultural and creative approaches

Women have long played an important, but often unacknowledged role in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Whilst women are overall well represented in many cultural professions, certain cultural and creative sectors which demand more digital and technological skills, such as the gaming and filming industry, still see a stark underrepresentation of women in these fields, as well as persisting gender stereotypes in the content that is produced. In order to improve girls’ participation and interest in these fields from an early age, a STEAM approach, featuring creative thinking, and a scientific evidence-based approach, applied arts, and the teaching of science in political, environmental, socio-cultural contexts, can prove particularly useful. Apply for this Horizon Europe Call until 14 March!

Green and digital skills for a just transition

Delivering on the green transition can deliver almost 1 million jobs in the EU. To design the transition successful and fair, existing and new workers need to be equipped with the right skills. In order to do that, they should have access to lifelong learning and dedicated up-skilling and reskilling programs. In a similar way, advanced digital skills require more than mastering coding or having a basis of computing sciences. With emerging technologies around quantum, AI, big data and other key technologies, the need for ICT specialist is increasing. Any idea in mind? Apply until 29 March!
