Despite the high levels of unemployment, in many European countries there is a scarcity of qualified people in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). In order to delve into this question, the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs of the European Parliament requested the study “Encouragement of Stem (Science, Technology, Engineering And Mathematics) Studies: Labour Market Situation and Comparison of Practices Targeted at Young People in Different Member States”.

Maria Caprile, Rachel Palmén and Pablo Sanz from Notus cooperated with FGB to carry out this study. The situation of STEM professionals in the labour market is examined whilst different national approaches to the promotion of STEM studies are highlighted. The objective is to identify practices that contribute to increasing the supply of STEM qualifications in the labour market.
