The ILCC hosts a seminar on the future of maths and science education in Europe.
Innovation is undoubtedly the key to continued economic prosperity, but--when it comes to training tomorrow’s researchers and engineers--are the curricula of European schools and universities up to scratch?
That is the topic of the seminar, “Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM)--Education for Europe’s Future”, organised by the Ireland Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce.
According to the chamber: “Policymakers need to base decisions from research and development which will drive industry in the future, as well as education policy and curriculum choices for schools and universities. On the other hand, some might oppose what they see as universities moving from their traditional role of higher learning to one of vocational teaching.”
The roundtable’s panellists are: Patrick Prendergast, provost and president of Trinity College Dublin, Ireland; Gabriel Crean, CEO at the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (pictured); and Luis De Miguel, managing director of ArcelorMittal Energy.
Registration begins at 6pm and the programme gets underway at 6.30pm. The event is free for ILCC members and students, or €25 for non-members.
