ERA Foundation — “Born to Engineer”

The ERA Foundation is a non-profit organisation which supports engineering skills development and aims to bridge the gap between research and commercialisation.

The Foundation supports a wide range of Engineering and STEM scholarships as part of our ‘Born to Engineer” outreach programme.

The “Born to Engineer” campaign attempts to raise the profile of the engineering and manufacturing industry by supporting lectures, seminars and conferences; providing news and resources for young Engineers; and producing our inspirational “Born to Engineer” series of short films.
