Stockholm International Youth Science Seminar is an annual event in which 25 of the world’s foremost young scientists are invited to Stockholm to take part in a unique science and culture program during December’s Nobel Week. All participants are between the ages of 18-25 and have been selected at international science fairs and by top ranking universities on the basis of their extraordinary research efforts.

The participating young scientists take part in an eventful schedule that includes attending Nobel events, meeting Nobel Prize Laureates and visiting noteworthy Swedish science and tech companies as well as locations of cultural importance.

During the week, participants are also the focus of a seminar where they present their research to a large audience of Swedish high school and university students. Attending the seminar is free of charge and students get to meet some of the world’s most talented young scientists, take part in a guided tour displaying amazing scientific projects, and attend an interesting and inspiring guest lecture.
