The European Union (EU) Contest for Young Scientists, an initiative of the European Commission, was set up to promote the ideals of co-operation and interchange between young scientists. Event is held in a different European city every year. At the end of September 2011 it will take place at Helsinki, Finland.

The young scientists also have the chance to meet others with similar abilities and interests and to be guided by some of the most prominent scientists in Europe. In this way, the Commission seeks to strengthen the efforts made in each participating country to attract young people to careers in science and technology.

The EU Contest gives students the opportunity to compete with the best of their contemporaries at European level. The Contest is the annual showcase of the best of European student scientific achievement and as such attracts widespread media interest.

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.

The Prizes

The contestants compete on the basis of their work and interviews with the Jury for nine Core Prizes.

* Three First Prizes worth €7000 each
* Three Second Prizes worth €5000 each
* Three Third Prizes worth €3500 each

In addition to this, a limited number of Honorary Awards and Special Donated Prizes are also awarded to the contestants where, in the judgement of the jury, they would benefit from the specific experiences that these prizes offer.
