22-27 September 2017 > The EU Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS) is part of the Science With And For and Society activities managed by the Directorate-General for Research of the European Commission.
EUCYS gives students the opportunity to compete with the best of their contemporaries at European level. The young scientists also have the chance to meet others with similar abilities and interests and 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 2017 edition of EUCYS is held in Tallinn, Estonia, from 22 to 27 September.
