Young Scientists in ScanBalt Bioregion Awarded for Outstanding Work – EURYI Awards
This November, twenty-five science researchers will receive EURYI awards to enable them to create research teams in Europe to focus on cutting-edge science research.
About to enter its third year, EURYI – the European Young Investigator Awards scheme – is designed to attract outstanding young scientists from any country in the world to create their own research teams at European research centres. Most awards are between €1,000,000 and €1,250,000 and comparable in size to the Nobel Prize.
The provisional list of awardees for 2005 includes researchers from 11 countries: Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The confirmed list of awardees with summary details of their projects will be posted on the EURYI website at the beginning of September.
The EURYI Awards are offered by 20 European national research organisations in an open competition with no “juste retour”, with candidates selected on the basis of their academic and research excellence and their future potential. Competition is intensive, with 622 applications received for this Second Call.
