IET factfile: STEM and Scotland’s future

Scotland has a long and enviable STEM history.

The issues that need to be addressed to ensure Scotland’s future economic and competitive sustainability include:

  • a greater focus on STEM in schools and colleges
  • the provision of the necessary resources and pathways to inspire the next generation of students
  • to ensure proper funding mechanisms are in place to drive Scotland’s STEM base
  • and to incentivise the business sector to engage with academia to deliver tomorrow’s technological and skills needed.
