Fondation pour la culture scientifique et technique

About us

The C.Genial Foundation, state-approved, was created in 2006 by six big companies: Areva, the EADS Foundation, France Telecom-Orange, Schlumberger, SNCF and Technip.


Resulting in the disengagement of young adults in the scientific and technical courses, these companies work together to raise awareness about sciences and the jobs associated. We work to revive the relations between youth (especially girls), science, technological innovations and research.


Our goals are numerous and complementary:







Thanks to the engagement of professionals in the world of teaching and of companies, we put together several flagship actions:


Engineers and technicians in classes: we organize and coordinate operations in which young engineers and technicians meet up with classes on the teachers demands.


Teachers in companies: every year in November, this event gives teachers the possibility to visit industrial sites and to talk with the engineers about their every-day-life.


The C.Genial Competition: this competition gives young adults the chance to win a reward for their scientific projects on a regional or national scale.


The C.Ingenieux Prize: this reward has as an objective to promote entrepreneurship in the midst of young adultes.


We are administrated by a Board made up of representative Founders and qualified well-known figures. We consult a Scientific Board, constituted of research, innovation, humanities and social science representatives, on big scientific orientations.
