Duration: 48 months (2023-2027)
STREAM IT project has been successfully acquired and will be implemented by CIRNT. The project was obtained within the framework of the call HORIZON-WIDERA-2023-ERA-01 (Enhancing the European R&I system) Topic: HORIZON-WIDERA-2023-ERA-01-10. The project aims to address gender stereotypes in the education of girls in STEM fields. With the participation of 23 partners across Europe, collaborative efforts will be made to achieve this goal, focusing on 1) empowering underrepresented groups in STEM, 2) piloting and fostering the integration of STEAM approaches in STEM education by synthesising previous knowledge and networks, 3) promoting gender inclusive career paths and increasing the talent pipeline in the STEM fields together with the attractiveness of STEM careers, 4) supporting STEM education providers through knowledge sharing, capacity building to remove gender-based barriers including gender stereotypes in STEM education. By encouraging sustainable collaboration of STEM-oriented businesses, secondary and higher education institutions, research organisations, as well as informal science education establishments, NGOs, and civil society organisations, ST(R)E(A)M IT provides several tools for closing the existing gender gap in STEM education and career.
