Young Researchers' Science Day

The 2022 edition of ProTrainU's Young Researchers' Science Day will take off on 26 October 2022 and provide funding for innovative research projects.

"High-risk, high-gain": On Young Researchers' Science Day we will give young researchers from all faculties the opportunity to present themselves and their own project ideas to the university public.
How to seize the opportunity?

First, submit your idea. A selected group of researchers will then gain access to a professional pitch training and present their projects to the university public on Science Day itself.

Finally, based on the documents submitted as well as the presentations, the best two applications will be awarded by a jury and receive the following funding amounts:

1st  place:    EUR 50,000
2nd place:   EUR 30,000

The funding can be spent on materials and equipment, assistant staff and/or test person remuneration.

The next Science Day will take place on 26 October 2022.
