Young Researchers' Science Day
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, equipment and assistant staff. Please refer to application guidelines to see how exactly the funds may be used.
