The project ‘ENGIE – Encouraging Girls to Study Geosciences and Engineering’ aims to turn the interest of 13-18 years old girls to study geosciences and related engineering disciplines. As career decisions are made generally in this period of life, the project expectedly will improve the gender balance in the fields of these disciplines. During the implementation of the three-year-long project, an awareness-raising strategy will be developed and an international stakeholder collaboration network will be established for the realisation of a set of concrete actions. These actions include family science events, outdoor programmes, school science clubs, mine visits, mentoring programmes, international student conferences, publication and awarding opportunities, summer courses to science teachers and production of educational materials. The actions will be carried out in more than twenty countries throughout Europe.

The project is going to start in January, 2020, and will last for 36 months.

This activity has received funding from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union, under the Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
