The International Junior Science Olympiad will be held in Europe for the first time in its 13 years of existence. The Netherlands has the honour to organise this international science event.
Although a few European countries have been involved since the early beginning of this friendly international science competition, the final competition often took place in Asia. Sander Dekker, State Secretary for Education, Culture and Science, is proud to welcome 300 bright, young beta enthusiasts to The Netherlands in December 2017: ‘The Olympiad offers its participants a chance to explore and apply their abilities. It gives them the opportunity to meet like-minded people with a passion for science from across the globe. For anyone who has ever participated, it has been an unforgettable experience. I wish you all the best of luck.’
