The EU Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS) is the most important initiative promoted by the EU and the member states to identify and encourage excellent young people, researchers and scientists of the future.
EUCYS is part of the Science With And For Society activities managed by the Directorate-General for Research of the European Commission. It aims at promoting the ideals of co-operation and interchange between young scientists. Through the event, the European Commission intends to valorise the efforts made in all the countries involved to bring young people closer to science and research, thus encouraging the best and most promising talents, and promote the spirit of innovation and collaboration.
EUCYS provides the students with the opportunity to compete with the best of their peers at European level. Young scientists also have the chance to meet others with similar abilities and interests, and some of the most prominent scientists in Europe.
This year, the participants will gather in Dublin to present their inventions, prototypes, research and obtain recognition during the 30th edition of this event.
BBI JU will be the proud sponsor of the Bioeconomy Bio-based Industries prize award.
