The European Union Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS) rewards and celebrates Europe’s best young scientific talent. The contest is organised by the European Commission to promote the ideals of cooperation and interchange between young scientists and to give them an opportunity to be guided by some of Europe's most prominent researchers.
BBI JU has been sponsoring the EUCYS Bioeconomy Prize since 2016. Every year, an international jury selects a project for its excellence in the field of bio-based research leading to a more sustainable future.
The name of the winner will be announced during the award ceremony on 19 September.
The event will start at 12:00 CEST and will be streamed online.
