Project Summary

EASTEM is a capacity-building project funded by Erasmus+ (KA2) with the aim of improving employability of STEM graduates from partner universities by ensuring students acquire skills needed in the workplace. EASTEM uses approaches from student-centered STEM education to develop the competence of lecturers and bridge the gap between industry universities.

Over the course of 3 years (2019-2021) and with a budget of 999.000 EUR, the project will bring together 3 universities from Europe and 10 from Asia, creating a platform for partner universities to exchange best practices on student-centered STEM education.
