Europe may soon be facing a shortage of scientists, reports Scientific Blogging. As not enough young people are going into the sciences or mathematics, a group of European education ministries, large companies, and the European Commission have begun a program called InGenious that aims to show young people that having scientific skills can help them get a job, to encourage women and minorities to study science, and to show how science can affect people's lives. "The new group worries this training gap is threatening the future of Europe's economic recovery due to the lack of qualified scientific and technical human resources, the key drivers of scientific progress and innovation," Scientific Blogging says.
