Stockholm International Youth Science Seminar

SIYSS is an annual week-long event for science-loving youth from around the world, organised in the first half of December in connection with the Nobel Prize awards ceremony.

The first seminar, inspired by the Society for Science & the Public in the USA, was organised by the Swedish Federation of Young Scientists in 1976. Since then, SIYSS has been successfully popularising science among young people, offering events with cultural and educational potential. The programme aims to promote international understanding and friendship by bringing together young people from around the world with similar interests. All participants are between the ages of 18-25 and are selected at international science fairs and by top ranking universities based on their extraordinary research efforts.
