The European Union Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS) has been organised by the European Commission since 1989. During the finals about a hundred of teenage scientists from dozens of countries present their works from various fields. The best young scientists in Europe have the opportunity to win prestigious awards and invitations for internships in leading European research centres. The Polish Children’s Fund (Polish: Krajowy Fundusz na rzecz Dzieci) has been organising the Polish elimination rounds to EUCYS since 1995. The international jury has already awarded 31 projects from our country (a total of 38 authors). Poles have won as many as 22 main awards and 20 additional ones. Today, the winners of the contest are outstanding students, Ph.D. students and young researchers.
In March, during the Polish elimination round for the European Union Contest for Young Scientists, three first prizes and nominations to represent Poland in the final of EUCYS 2014 were obtained by:
The organiser of EUCYS 2014 is the University of Warsaw and the project is co-organised by the Polish Children’s Fund and the Copernicus Science Centre. The strategic partner of EUCYS 2014 is PZU. At the contest, the three young Polish scientists will meet hundreds of colleagues from all over Europe and many countries from outside our continent.
The Copernicus Science Centre is a co-organiser of this event.
