The project partners follow the principles of ET2020 ”Improve the quality and efficiency of education
and training; enhance creativity including entrepreneurship, and especially it is based on the principle
of “fewer than 15% of 15-year-olds should be under-skilled in reading, mathematics and science”.
The partners decided to implement the Stem project because the schools are the places to guide the
students for the right future jobs and raise the students for the world of work. In many parts of
Europe, employers have difficulties hiring people with the right STEM skills, particularly ICT
professionals. The latest PISA and TIMMS data show that more than one in five 15-year olds in
Europe are functionally illiterate in reading, maths and science.
