EURYI: European Young Investigator Awards 2005

This November, twenty-five young science researchers will receive EURYI Awards to enable them to create research teams in Europe to focus on cutting-edge science research. The 2005 Awardees will receive a diploma at a special ceremony taking place on 9 November in Budapest, Hungary, before the beginning of the World Science Forum in Budapest, 10-12 November 2005.


The 2005 EURYI Winners

The list of EURYI Awardees for 2005 includes researchers from 11 countries - Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, The Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
