Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM)
Education for Europe's Future

The Ireland Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce (ILCC) held an Evening Seminar on Tuesday 24 November 2015 entitled "Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) – Education for Europe's Future".
Today, more than ever, education plays a hugely important role in economic prosperity and competitiveness, with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) at the forefront of innovation. Policymakers need to base decisions about research and development which will drive industry in the future, as well as education policy and curriculum choices for schools and universities.
On the other hand, some might oppose what they see as universities moving from their traditional role of institutions of higher learning to one of vocational teaching.
This seminar aims at exploring the issues involved in the processes of critical thinking, analysis and collaboration by putting together three renowned experts from Ireland and Luxembourg, bringing both the academic and industry perspectives.
The event is being sponsored by the Kerry Group.
