The NI STEM pipeline: Will we find any scientists there in the near future?

A workforce with sophisticated skills in STEM areas has been identified as essential asset for economic competitiveness in the near future due to the rapid shifts in global industrial trends. The NI STEM Report acknowledged that there were not enough people choosing to study STEM subjects at school, College or University to provide a good “pipeline” of STEM graduates to the jobs market. The report also outlined how this STEM pipeline and its development is a priority, both to create a modern workforce and to ensure that young people engage with STEM given that the world around them will become increasingly scientific and technical.
