Computational thinking is a 21st-century skill and an emerging global issue. Despite the great benefits for the educational context, there is little knowledge about the projects being carried out in the European context. Therefore, it was decided to re-conduct a systematic review of trends in projects addressing Computational Thinking at the pre-university level in Europe. The search was carried out in the CORDIS and Erasmus+ databases and several inclusion, exclusion and quality criteria were applied. The main results show most projects foster computational thinking across STEM subjects. Moreover, institutions in Spain and Italy tend to be more involved. Also, the projects provide digital didactic material for teachers to work within the classroom to foster students’ computational thinking development. Furthermore, they propose action plans and activities be incorporated into the curricula of any institution.
