European Coordinating Body in Maths, Science and Technology Education (ECB)

Objective

The European Coordinating Body in Maths, Science and Technology Education (ECB) is a large-scale strategic response to the FP7 call to reinforce links between science education and science and technology careers in the private sector through reinforcing the partnership industry/education.
The overall aim of the ECB is to increase young Europeans’ interest in mathematics, science and technology (MST) education and careers, addressing two challenges: lack of interest in the subjects and the future skills gap (by 2020, there will be 20 million high-skilled jobs and 30 million medium-skilled jobs using MST in Europe).
The partnership proposed for the ECB is a multi-stakeholder consortium of 26 partners in 17 countries, associating Ministries of Education, Businesses (major European companies, National science platforms, Organisations representing the interests of industry) and Universities. The financial model of the ECB is based on a shared contribution provided by the major stakeholders of the project; a significant part of the budget is devoted to dissemination and impact activities.
Through innovative initiatives and coordinating and building on existing school/business partnerships in the field of MST education across Europe, the ECB will develop a repository of practice, disseminate and stimulate good practices in MST and encourage new practices. Two key areas of work are a portal with an observatory of industry-education information, guidance and good practices in Europe and networks of over 1000 primary and secondary schools (with a leading pilot network of 150 schools) which will validate the best practices, design a programme of activities and organise seminars for teachers on industry-education cooperation in MST education. A set of major dissemination and exploitation activities are designed to mainstream and sustain good practices and so increase numbers opting for MST in schools, and ultimately increase the number of Europe’s researchers and scientists.
