A showcase for the researchers of the future

The EU launched the Contest for Young Scientists back in 1989, with the aim of encouraging young people to get involved in science and eventually embark on a career in research.

Every year since then, young researchers aged 14 to 21 from across Europe and beyond have gathered to present their work and compete for the top prizes. All of the entrants have already won prestigious science awards in their home countries, making this international contest one of the toughest competitions for young scientists in the world.

The event also offers the participants a fantastic opportunity to get to know other young scientists and discuss their work with some of the worlds leading researchers, including Nobel Prize winners.

Hands-on experience

The EU Contest for Young Scientists highlights the value of inquiry-based science education. The young participants have all been through the process of posing questions, making observations, designing experiments, evaluating results and drawing conclusions.
