STEM Report

The STEM Report is a bi-annual investigation by researchers at the German Economic Institute into the labour market in the fields of mathematics, IT, the natural sciences and technology - in Germany referred to collectively by the acronym STEM.

In the report, MINT occupations are broken down into ‘experts’ (generally graduates), ‘specialists’ (master craftsmen and technicians) and ‘skilled workers’ (generally in jobs requiring an apprenticeship or vocational training). The report presents data on the jobs on offer in the economy as a whole, on the unemployed and on the lack of qualified workers for the highly skilled occupations in the MINT segment of the labour market. The study is conducted in cooperation with the Confederation of German Employers' Associations (BDA), the Confederation of German Industry (BDI), Gesamtmetall, the employers' association in the Metalworking and Electrical Industry, and MINT Zukunft schaffen, a joint initiative of the employers’ associations aimed at redressing the lack of skilled workers in the relevant fields.
