EU TalentOn 2024

The Academic Consortium – Katowice City of Science and the European Comission have the honor to invite scientists, students and PhD students of all European universities and institutions to participate in the EU TalentOn 2024 European Union Contest for early-career researchers.

EU TalentOn 2024 is a competition for young scientists (21-35 years old) from European countries and countries associated with the Horizon Europe Programme. The idea is to encourage young, bright minds to propose new, creative solutions to the world's most pressing problems. 
Participants will work in groups to create a proposal in one of 5 scientific areas which correspond to the 5 EU Missions in Horizon Europe (Adaptation to Climate Change, Cancer Prevention and Care, Restore our Ocean and Water, 100 Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities, A Soil Deal for Europe). We are looking for scientific, creative, feasible, and convincing: the idea is to encourage a flow of fresh, interdisciplinary ideas, including input from all areas of science and humanities. 
The winners will receive cash prizes worth 75 000 EUR.
The contest is funded by the European Union and will be the flagship event as a part of the celebration of the European City of Science Katowice 2024. The competition will take place on September 9-14, 2024 in Katowice. Costs related to transport, accommodation and meals will be covered by the European Commission.
