inGenious is the European Coordinating Body in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). It is a joint initiative launched by European Schoolnet and the European Roundtable of Industrialists (ERT) aiming to reinforce young Europeans’ interest in science education and careers and thus address the future skills gap.
Through a strategic partnership between major industries and Ministries of Education, inGenious has the objective to increase the links between science education and careers, by involving up to 1,000 classrooms throughout Europe.
With a grant of €8 million from the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme over a 3-year period, and the support of 26 partners from 16 countries, including 7 major industries, inGenious is one of the largest and most strategicprojects in science education undertaken in Europe.
