UKF, a Founding Member of the STEM Consortium of European Universities
STEM education issues also relate to gender equality and other socio-cultural aspects of education of the young generation, including digitalization of education. The ICSE Center has the ambition to address, share, and manage research projects on the aforementioned topics as well as to obtain valid research outcomes and implement them in practice and political decisions in the EU countries. Professor Katji Maass, whose scientific work is focused on didactics of mathematics, activating methods of teaching and the development of relations between STEM subjects at all levels of education, including teacher training education, is a leading figure of both ICSE and STEM Consortium.
The founding of the STEM Consortium was supported by thirty European universities, Ministries of Education from ten EU member states, and twenty centers of continuous and professional education in Europe.
UKF in Nitra and other Consortium members are currently involved in InsluSMe, an Erasmus+ project, and in co-organizing Mathematics B-day, a team competition for high school students.
UKF in Nitra is honored by the invitation to become a founding member of the STEM Consortium. The invitation confirms UKF in Nitra is a responsible and acceptable partner of European projects in education with the prospect of further development of project partnerships in STEM education in the international scientific community.
