The research and need analysis will be conducted in all participating countries and at the European level. Focus will be on:
- The current level of STEM education and (infra)structures in each participating country, particularly in primary and secondary schools, but also in HEIs and VETs
- The best implemented practices that use robotics as tool for stem education
- Policy initiatives and/or guidelines from regional or national educational authorities relevant to STEM education and robotics.
The activity will include desk and field research. The partners will interview key stakeholders (teachers, trainers, professors, educators).
The research findings will be summarised in country reports that will be included in overall Report in English. The overall report will be translated in the languages of participating countries in order to become an advocacy tool.
