This European Framework of Competences is the first formal output of the STEAM Stars project. It provides a reference of competences in teaching STEAM education to gifted students, using a common language to describe these competences that can be understood across Europe, following European standards and frameworks of reference such as the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).

This document provides an outline of the STEAM Stars project and its partner organisations, followed by details of the key competences which form the Framework.

The Framework forms the basis for the future actions in the STEAM Stars project, and provides the structure within which the Open Campus and mobile assessment app will be created (see Section 2 below).
