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.
