Developing the next generation of scientists and engineers

3 June 2014, London

This seminar looks at the challenges in increasing the number of young people who choose Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects and careers. It follows recent concerns about the lack of STEM graduates taking up careers in these subjects and is also timed to follow the recent publication of the House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committee inquiry into Women in STEM careers, with just 15.5% of the STEM workforce being made up of women.

Planned sessions look at ways in which government and the HE sector can encourage more young people to study STEM subjects at all levels of education, as well as ways to improve careers guidance for those who do. Delegates will also have the opportunity to discuss the outcomes and recommendations made in the Perkins review, published in November 2013. We are delighted that Professor John Perkins, Chief Scientific Advisor, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and Christopher Millward, Associate Director, North, HEFCE have agreed to deliver keynote addresses at this seminar.
