EU awards prizes for young scientists
On 16 September, the European Union’s top prizes for young scientists were announced during the EUCYS award ceremony in Brussels. The European Union Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS) brings together the best young scientists aged 14-20 years old from the EU and beyond to present their projects to a panel of international judges.
The students presented 85 different projects to an international jury of 22 highly qualified scientists and engineers with worldwide reputations in their chosen fields, chaired by Dr. Mariya Lyubenova, from the European Southern Observatory. The winning projects shared a total of €62,000 in prize money, including four 1st prizes of €7,000, four 2nd prizes of €5,000, four 3rd prizes of €3,500, and prestigious scholarship and visits to the EIROforum, CERN, and ESA.
