provides opportunities of empowerment and development to young women affected by socioeconomic barriers, and inspire them to start a business in the STEM sector.

The high quality practical resources produced by the 4 partners in the FA ST consortium are used to increase a wide set of competences , necessary to compete in the actual labour market ( STEM literacy, soft and entrepreneur skills ) while offering a substantial and comprehensive support to those willing to start a business in the STEM sector (fast prototyping, business planning).

 

Women / business specific - social, cultural attitudes, lower levels of entrepreneurial skills , smaller and less effective entrepreneurial networks and policy frameworks; young women with a migrant background face barriers connected to their cultural background and often the language. Women / STEM specific - inequality in how men and women are treated in STEM jobs, minor encouragement from parents and teachers resulting in a shift of interest in fields in which they feel more confident lack of practical experiences during school, a lack of understanding of concrete applications that show what they could accomplish through training and professional paths in the STEM field
