European Commission

The European Commission is the executive body of the European Union. Its main tasks are proposing new laws and policies, supervising their implementation, and managing the EU budget. The Commission also ensures that EU policies and rules are correctly applied in all EU countries, negotiates international agreements on behalf of the Union, and allocates financial resources. 

Funded by the European Union

The European Commission’s support for EUCYS from the very beginning has provided the competition with not only financial security but, more importantly, has facilitated the development of scientific collaboration between EU countries. EUCYS fosters not only research activities but also interpersonal relationships. Under the European Commission’s guidance, prestigious scientific institutions from all over the continent are involved in the event. The Commission enables the free flow of ideas, projects, and people among leading research entities, while opening doors to them for young people participating in EUCYS. Thanks to the competition, young people from European countries gain access to numerous institutions and authorities in various fields – an opportunity that would be impossible outside the event.

The Contest is funded under Horizon Europe: the EU Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development, and is part of a broader initiative to reinforce the links between science and society, responsible research and innovation, and the further development of a European Research Area. It is managed by the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation of the European Commission.
