About the STEM Alliance

The STEM Alliance brings together industries, Ministries of Education and education stakeholders to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics education and careers to young Europeans and address anticipated future skills gaps within the European Union. The STEM Alliance builds on the success of the EU-funded inGenious initiative (2011-2014) to increase the links between STEM education and careers, by involving schools throughout Europe.


SYSTEMIC is a strategic partnership project funded under KA2 of the Erasmus+ programme. The overall objective of the SYSTEMIC project ("Say Yes to STEM In the Classroom") is to increase young Europeans' interest in maths, science, engineering and technology education and  careers and to provide teachers with the appropriate pedagogical tools to teach STEM topics differently and in a more attractive way.
