Bioeconomy non-food prize, new category at the EU Contest for Young Scientists
The Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) is sponsoring a new category of the European Union Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS Prize): the bioeconomy non-food prize, awarding projects related with the conversion of biomass into non-food value-added products.
The EUCYS Prize, part of the Science and Society Activities managed by the Directorate-General for Research of the European Commission, is an annual contest aiming at promoting the ideals of co-operation and interchange between young scientists. It also gives the opportunity to showcase the best European student scientific achievements.
After having been selected in affiliated events all around European, these projects are currently being shown in Brussels, until September 20th. By organising this event, the Commission seeks to strengthen the efforts made in each participating country to attract young people to careers in science and technology. The jury of the Award is composed of 18-20 members of international reputation.
