The House of Lords’ science and technology committee has launched an enquiry into people and skills in UK STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
Questions include whether there is a STEM skills gap, how that can be addressed, and what skills will be required in the future.
The committee asks whether STEM graduates are being sufficiently prepared for highly skilled careers and about whether it could be easier for people to develop STEM skills across multiple disciplines.
And it asks if the UK has become a more or less attractive place to work for people from abroad, and whether there has been a brain drain.
We would welcome comments on these points.
