Sofia’s turn to organise Europe’s biggest science fair
More than 150 young scientists from 39 countries around the world entered the 31st EU Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS) in Sofia, Bulgaria, in September 2019. The student contestants presented their research to a jury that included successful and prominent scientists from across Europe. Projects included a novel advanced treatment process for the removal of antibiotics from wastewater, and a method for skeletal age estimation based on cranial suture analysis. Organised by Bulgaria’s education ministry, the EU-funded EUCYS2019 project also formed a pilot alumni parallel programme to gather former participants in the contest and lay the foundations of a future EUCYS alumni network. EUCYS is the most important student science fair in the EU.
