Young talented scientists to meet again in Finland
30.10.2011 / 21:19
A group of 30 talented young people will meet once again in Finland next June at the third Millennium Youth Camp. Online applications can be made starting from 19 October, and participants will be chosen using a two-phase selection process which will end in the middle of March 2012.
Arranged on an annual basis, the Millennium Youth Camp welcomes students from all continents. In 2011, almost 1500 young people from a hundred different countries applied to take part. One of the camp’s primary goals is to encourage young scientists to network at an early stage in their careers and help them launch a career in science or technology.
The week-long 2012 Millennium Youth Camp will take place in the Helsinki Metropolitan Region and start on 9 June 2012. Participation is free of charge. As in previous years, the project themes are climate change, renewable natural resources and energy, water, ICT and digitalisation, and applied mathematics.
