Innovation and new technology can be a source of growth and jobs. It can also help solve many of the problems that we confront as a planet, from climate change and resource scarcity, to urbanisation and development. Yet Europe risks falling behind if it doesn’t work hard to train the next generation of scientists, engineers, and technicians.

What are the best ways to teach science and technology? How can we encourage our education systems to place a greater emphasis on creativity and innovation? How can we ensure that young Europeans are being equipped with the right skills for the 21st Century?

These questions, plus many more, will be addressed in a series of 3 debates looking at Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths (STEM) education in Europe. Debating Europe, in partnership with European Schoolnet and Scientix, will be inviting policymakers and experts to respond to YOUR questions on education.

Join the debate!
