The European Association for Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).


The training phase has just started

Drawing on the results of the Collaborative Diagnostic Assessment coordinated by the University of Bologna, in June 2018 Inova Consultancy delivered a first draft of EUMentorSTEM toolkits (the Learner’s and the Trainer’s kit) that were presented to partners between the 25th and the 27th of June, when the Training of Trainers held in Budapest (Hungary) took place.

Participants from the different Consortium countries were trained in the Mentoring CirclesTM methodology developed by Inova that underpins the project training strategy and tested the tools that are part of the toolkits.

After the Training of Trainers, the Consortium finalized the toolkits and translated them into Consortium national languages in order to start uploading the training materials in the project Virtual Hub.

Between October 2018 and March 2019, partners will test the toolkits in a two-round pilot training targeting five migrant women with a STEM background each, and in a pilot targeting ten professionals working with this group of beneficiaries.

The training materials will be made available in the Virtual Hub at the end of the testing phase. Meanwhile, partners has just started the recruitment of the trainees to be involved in the pilots.


News from WiTEC Austria

 

Technikon, a private independent Austrian research service provider, host WiTEC in Austria has undertaken a new way to attract women into ICT jobs.

Their recently established NewMedia team are creating animated recruiting videos and plan a full series of technical oriented podcasts. The series of podcasts are intended for a broad public audience and are targeting interested European citizen. The podcasts are covering a wide range of topics from methods to use IBMs artificial intelligence to assist pediatric doctors worldwide to treat child cancer,  terahertz communication technologies from Ericsson for autonomous driving or security technologies from Infineon to withstand the brute force from quantum computers.

 

The goal of the Austrian WiTEC representative is to attract more women with the help of new social media technologies to emerging new engineering areas.
