inGenious is the platform of the European Coordinating Body in Science ,Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education. It is a joint initiative launched by European Schoolnet and the European Roundtable of Industrialists (ERT) aiming to reinforce young European's interest in science education and careers and thus address the future skills gap.

Through a strategic partnership between major industries and education 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.

Supported by 26 partners from 16 countries, including 7 major industries, inGenious is one of the largest and most strategic projects in science education undertaken in Europe.

All the actions undertaken in inGenious ensure that education / industry cooperation initiatives improve the image of STEM careers among young people and encourage them to think about the wide range of interesting opportunities that STEM can bring to their lives in the future.

In the last term of the 2011 year inGenious will run a week campaign on chemistry. All the actions undertaken by the consortium will be listed on the website. Specific resources will be made available for teachers and students.
