Who can participate?
Only young scientists who have been designated by their respective national jury can participate in the EU Contest. In each country, the National Organizer is responsible for nominating the projects, and therefore the contestants, which are entered for the EU Contest.
Projects may have been worked upon by individual participants or by teams of not more than three people. The rules concerning age and education requirements are applicable to all members of a project team. Where a team is involved all members of the team must be represented at the Contest so the Jury can conduct a thorough evaluation of their combined efforts.

The National Organisers are responsible for selecting projects, submitting applications, and for all communication with the Commission.
All contestants will be accompanied to the EU Contest by their National Organiser, or by an adult escort appointed by the National Organiser. The National Organiser, as the principal contact in all participating countries, will assure liaison between the contestants and the EU Contest in all matters concerning the Contest.
National Organisers and/or escort(s) constitute together with their contestants their respective country's official delegation and are the only ones that can enjoy access to all public and private events associated with the Contest.
National Organisers assume responsibility for the well being and behaviour of their party. They:
ensure that their party travels with adequate health, accident and travel insurance that covers them for both the travel and duration of the Contest.
handle the linguistic or other problems that may arise during the Contest or in relation to associated activities.
ensure that they have their own measures in place to assure their party's behaviour remains beyond reproach.
