It means setting ourselves side by side with the new generations to look into the future together and witness how important the STEM disciplines (Science, Technologies, Engineering and Mathematics) are to us at Leonardo. Indeed, they are at the core of our activity and our business, just like our people (70% of our employees hold degrees in these disciplines).
It means being committed to contributing to the objectives of the UN 2030 Agenda, especially to the 4th SDG in order to provide education that is of quality, fair and inclusive and apprenticeship opportunities for everyone, and to the 9th SDG in order to support technological skills in business by encouraging innovation and attracting people and resources for Research & Development.
Scientific citizenship also, and most importantly, means placing our technological passion at the centre, sharing it and adding to it through ongoing dialogue with the community, institutions, research centres and universities.
We have chosen to add the A for ARTS to the STEM acronym because we believe that in order to respond to today's challenges, it is necessary to adopt a STEAM approach where innovation, knowledge, creativity and imagination are thoroughly combined through a merging process to jointly build the skills of the future.
