The list of the 2006 Awardees includes researchers who will be based in 11 countries – Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

Every year, the EU celebrates its best young scientific talent at the EU Contest for Young Scientists. Now into its 18th year, this high profile event is open to young people aged between 14 and 21 years old, who are the winners of national competition. This way, the Contest gives these students the opportunity to compete with the best of their contemporaries at European level. The 18th edition will take place in Stockholm, Sweden, from 23-28 September 2006 and will be hosted by the National Museum of Science and Technology.

Competition is available for young researchers (up to 35-years by the end of the year in which the decision is made) employed by research units of the V4 Academies. Competition is open in one scientific field each year. The scientific field of competition for yeach year is determined at he meeting of the V4 Academies of a given year. Each Academy can nominate one candidate. Each Academy announces the competition. Application deadline is March 31, each year. Nominations should be sent both by e-mail and by post to the national Academies.

This contest is designed to attract outstanding young scientists from any country in the world to create their own research teams in European research centers.
