The STEM Agenda 2030 also focuses on a higher intake in STEM courses and careers, on STEM specialists and on the general strengthening of STEM skills in society more widely: ‘STEM literacy’.

In practical terms, this translates into four strategic objectives:

  • Society is aware of the importance of STEM skills.
  • Anyone with an interest in and talent for STEM will be able to find an appropriate STEM study programme.
  • STEM education and training responds to the developments and transitions in business, research and society.
  • STEM skills are applied as much as possible to the needs, changes and transitions in business, research and society more generally.
