ineering talent from other regions, or even close facilities in Europe in favour of other regions. This will have a negative impact on salary levels and local economies - high level R&D is typically a well-paid and resource-intensive activity.

Maire Geoghan-Quin, European Commissioner for Science, Research and Innovation, highlighted the scale of the problem in a recent speech to the Tyndall Institute in Ireland:

"We cannot risk our future growth and competitiveness by cutting back now on the investment in education, research and innovation that is necessary for long-term and sustained recovery," said Ms Geoghan-Quinn.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Western European students the least likely to study science, maths and engineering

An indicator[2] developed by the European Round Table of Industrialists demonstrates that those countries where students are least likely to choose science, maths and engineering are France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK.

At the same time, even Europe's highest scientific achievers - Finnish students - are still outperformed by Chinese students in Shanghai and Hong Kong according to OECD figures[3].

In the recent Eurydice report on science education[4], Androula Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education and Youth, noted:

"Many international reports identify the potential shortage of human resources in key scientific professions and call for modernising science teaching in school. How is it possible to raise the motivation of pupils, to increase their interest in science, and at the same time, to increase attainment levels?" 

InGenious invites companies, educational organisations and federations to join this exciting partnership, and work together to collectively address the challenge of science and technology skills in Europe. The partnership enables existing players to upgrade, pool and enhance their activities in science an
