Global Young Scientists Summit in Singapore brings together bright young researchers and top scientific minds from around the world to discuss science and technology trends, future game changers, and how research could address major global challenges. Young scientists from Finland have once again a chance to be nominated as candidates by Technology Academy Finland, GYSS official partnering organization in Finland.

GYSS is a multi-disciplinary summit that covers topics including chemistry, physics, medicine, mathematics, computer science, and engineering.  Speakers at the Summit include recipients of the Nobel Prize, Fields Medal, Turing Award and Millennium Technology Prize – the pre-eminent global technology prize awarded by Technology Academy Finland. 

At the Global Young Scientists Summit, participants will take part in lectures, plenary sessions, and panel discussions.  They will have the opportunity to interact with and be mentored by speakers in informal small group sessions.

“Absolutely the best thing was sitting down with some of the most influential people in history and listening to their stories. I never imagined I would get a chance to talk to these people.”
