The finals of the Ninth EU Contest for Young Scientists will be held in Milan, Italy, from 9 to 14 September 1997.

The aim of the contest is to promote the ideals of cooperation and interchange between young scientists. It showcases the best of young scientific achievement, and gives the entrants the chance to compete with the best of their contemporaries at European level.
