Yesterday, on the 13th of September 2022, the participants of the European Contest for Young Scientists arrived in Leiden. The participants spend a large part of their day preparing for the presentations of their projects in the Hooglandse Kerk. 
Today, it's finally time for the official EUCYS opening. This event is a big deal for its participants, of course. However, you can also join in the celebrations. The entire opening will be livestreamed, starting at 10:30am! Follow this link!

However, today is also a big day for the participants of the EU TalentOn. They'll be arriving in Leiden throughout the afternoon, and will be fully participating in this pressure-cooker event starting tomorrow. Do you want to see the presentations of these do-gooders? That's possible! On Friday the 16th of September, the participants will show their projects to the public. To attend, register here!
