Presentation of the STEMGenderIN project


Framework and duration

STEMGenderIN: A bridge to close the STEM gap with gender-inclusive education and teaching is an international European project running for 24 months, from September 2023 to August 2025. This project aims to reduce gender disparities in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM ) by improving teachers’ skills in taking gender diversity into account.


Aim of the project

The main objective is to raise awareness and equip teachers of STEM courses in lower secondary schools, specifically targeting pupils aged 11 to 15. By focusing on combating gender stereotypes and promoting inclusive education and teaching, the project aims to encourage more girls to pursue studies and careers in STEM disciplines.


Main activities

Project activities include

The creation of an EU framework for equality in STEM at school, aiming to establish a solid scientific basis for the development of pedagogical tools.

The development of tailor-made pedagogical tools for equity in STEM education, ensuring that they are available in digital format to facilitate dissemination.

The establishment of a multilingual platform serving as a reference point to support gender equality in STEM education in the classroom.


Expected results

The project will result in the development of a mini-training programme available in digital format for STEM teachers, including information, awareness-raising tools and ready-to-use activities. This will strengthen the role of teachers and schools as stakeholders in guiding students, particularly girls, towards STEM studies at secondary level and beyond.


Partners and support

The project is coordinated by Interface3.Namur, Belgium, in partnership with M.Y.CULTURE (Italy), Scoala Gimnaziala Nr. 16 Take Ionescu (Romania), Euphoria Net Srl (Italy), the Centre for Social Studies of the University of Coimbra (Portugal).
