The European Coordinating Body in Maths, Science and Technology Education (ECB) relates 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 students’ 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 15 countries, associating Ministries of Education, Businesses (major European companies, National science platforms, Organizations representing the interests of industry) and Universities. 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.
