The article discusses the state of chemistry education in Germany. The association of German state-level education ministries estimates that the number of chemistry graduates could increase faster than the number of graduates in other natural science courses by 2010. The chemical industry is helping to make the chemistry curriculum more practical and less theoretical. In 2003, the industry's organisations including the academic chemical societies Dechema and GDCh, held a chemistry education summit to formulate their shared goals, and subsequently have pursued these goals with dedication.
