Technology continues to dominate much of our daily lives. To be able to compete worldwide, Europe needs more highly skilled technicians. We need to use the talents we have available, especially the talents of women. The current low participation of women in STEM fields is a problem for most European countries.
In the Erasmus+ KA2 project GirlsTech this theme is addressed. Eight countries share their knowledge to improve their own policies. The project is not about developing a new universal tool, but to focus on peer learning activities, to find out which approaches might be suitable for the participating countries. The project lasts from 1 September 2016 until 31 August 2018.
Edison: entrepreneurship in education
