What cooperation is there with countries outside Europe?

Since 1991, as part of a special exchange proposed in the Transatlantic Declaration, American prize winners from the INTEL International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) attend the EU Contest. Since 1999, young scientists from Japan and the Republic of Korea have participated in the EU Contest in the same way as the Contest's guests from the United States of America. In 2003, China's CASTIC competition for young researchers will join the EU Contest, and therefore China will become the fourth Guest Participant in the EU Contest
