The GYEC 2022 will be held on Saturday, May 28, 2022.
Here’s what the GYEC says about this competition
The GYEC aims to encourage young people’s entrepreneurship and develop their knowledge and experience of enterprise. It gives an opportunity for teams of high school students from around the world to solve a significant global problem through an innovative and sustainable enterprise idea. They also learn to apply their knowledge of science and technology in a practical way.
Eligible participants are 14–19-year-old students who are attending high school. In order to register for the competition, participants need to form a team of up to eight eligible students. Ideally, the team should possess a broad range of complementary skills and knowledge in areas such as science, technology, business, marketing and communication.
