What is the EU Contest for Young Scientists?

The EU Contest is an annual Europe wide competition to select the best scientific projects devised and created by young scientists of school age and up to first year university. The EU contest is held each September. It comprises a three day Science Exhibition, followed by a Prize-giving day. Each contestant is a prize winner from their national competition for young scientists and all the entries to the EU Contest are put forward by national organizers. Taking into account all the national contests, over 30.000 young scientists have competed before about 60 selected projects are brought together at the EU Contest. In 2003 the EU Contest will be held in Budapest, Hungary.
