In addition to the ESOF conference and Knowledge throughout the Neighbourhoods, Leiden2022 also organises the top event for young European researchers: the EU Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS).
EUCYS2022 will take place during the week of 12 to 18 September 2022. This European competition for young scientists aged between 14 and 24 promotes collaboration and exchange and gives them extra incentives to develop a promising career.
Leiden2022 has been commissioned by the European Commission to also renew the EUCYS conference. In 2022, a pilot project will be added to the programme, aimed at 'next stage researchers & early career researchers' aged between 20 and 24. Moreover, EUCYS will take place at the same time as the inspiring ArtScienceWeek full of activities that are open to both EUCYS participants and the general public.
