The EU Contest for Young Scientists comes to Dublin this September, for the second time in its near-three decade history. The first EUCYS event was held in Brussels in 1989, with the aim of encouraging cooperation and the exchange of ideas and knowledge between young researchers, and to inspire and instil confidence in them to follow careers in science. This year’s event takes place in the RDS, Ballsbridge, Dublin, and runs for a full five days from Friday 14th to Tuesday 18th September. It offers participants the opportunity to meet and discuss their work with some of the world’s leading scientists. TOG will be there from 10 to 4 on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th, and from 10 to 3 on Monday 17th, showcasing our projects and activities.
EUCYS is a part of the the Science with and for Society programme run by the Research directorate of the European Commission. For venue details and a programme of events, visit the EUCYS website.
