Maltese young sci­en­tists miss­ing from EU Con­test for Young Sci­en­tists for three years now

The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE - Noel Grima

As this pa­per re­ported two is­sues back, there were no Maltese par­tic­i­pants in the 30th EU Con­test for Young Sci­en­tists that was held a few weeks back.

A Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Of­fi­cer from DG Re­search and In­no­va­tion told this pa­per that Maltese stu­dents com­peted at EUCYS from 1998 to 2015.

Un­for­tu­nately Malta has not sent con­tes­tants to EUCYS for the past three years (2016, 2017 and 2018) al­though they are in­vited ev­ery year.

The Na­tional Stu­dent Travel Foun­da­tion was nom­i­nated Na­tional Or­gan­iser for EUCYS by the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion in 1997 and through the Maltese na­tional con- test se­lects par­tic­i­pants for the EU Con­test for Young Sci­en­tists.

The Euro­pean Com­mis­sion would be happy to re­open a di­a­logue with Malta and have Maltese stu­dents in­volved in the next con­tests, the Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Of­fi­cer said..
