Young researchers convince experts with their projects

The final of the Swiss Youth in Science national competition has been held virtually for the first time due to the current pandemic. Against all odds, 136 young researchers presented their work to the jury of experts, showing their research results and ideas via video call on 23 and 24 April.


They were then honoured for their outstanding achievements on 25 April. The finalists, who came from 20 cantons, had been carrying out research and work on their projects for at least a year.


Twenty special national and international prizes were awarded in addition to cash prizes totalling almost 100,000 Swiss francs, with which the young researchers can carry Switzerland's innovative strength out into the world.
