This first policy brief aims to convey the results of the first year of the Road-STEAMer project to policy makers, with special attention to the European context, in a way that is easily understandable and approachable, in order to boost the agenda of STEAM in Europe.
These are the main areas for the development of specific policy recommendations:
- Encourage the uptake of STE(A)M careers to counter the skills crisis;
- Increase diversity in STE(A)M, both to counter the skills crisis and enrich the field with a wider range of perspectives;
- Increase science and arts literacy for all so that no citizens are left behind in an increasingly technological world;
- Align education with tomorrow’s societal needs, to build a society that can tackle the complex problems it is set out to face.
