EPCA has become an Associate Partner of the ECB – inGenious project.
The European Coordinating Body in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education – brings together major European Industries, Ministries of Education and national platforms to increase young people’s interest in science education and careers and thus address the future skills gap.
The project, co-funded by the European Commission and industry, is one of the largest initiatives in this field, involving 26 partners across 16 countries and a network of about 1000 schools across Europe.
In the scope of the inGenious project, EPCA will promote chemistry and the chemical industry in schools to help convince youngsters that chemistry is an attractive science and that the chemical industry is a good place to work for.
EPCA’s partnership with inGenious is in line with its objectives to contribute to the long term sustainable development of the chemical industry and to contribute to the improvement of the public image of the global chemical business community.
