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: 50.000 €
2nd place: 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.

The 1st Young Researchers' Science Day was a great success!
Successful premiere of the 1st Young Reasearchers Science Day at Ulm University! The innovative pitch format was very well received by all the people involved and also by the audience, which is why the 2nd Young Researchers' Science Day is also planned for 2022.
