Millennium Graduate Student Contest 2021

Millennium Graduate Student Contest

The contest offers emerging researchers a platform to present their work and make new connections. Participants have three minutes to give a pitch on how their research helps to solve a contemporary problem, promoting innovations for a better life. 

First, the participants submit videos of their pitches for the pre-screening round. Five pitches are chosen for the grand final held in the Millennium Innovation Forum in Marina Congress Center in Helsinki on 26 October 2022.

More information coming soon.
