We care about the next generation and future innovation - that's why we need to proactively provide our youngsters with opportunities to explore the world of science. Science can be fun and an adventure. This newly launched portal is an opportunity for young people to dive into this world and find out about amazing phenomena in nature! They can see how science is used to take the next step in innovation, get in contact with people working in the science industry, get information about professions and learn how to start a scientific career. We think it is important to raise the understanding of science and support SCGI Youth & Innovation and the platform Simply Science
