What is the EOES?

The EOES (European Olympiad of Experimental Science) is an annually recurring science olympiad for young people from the European Union, organised by a member country of EOES NPO.

More than 20 countries each send two teams of three participants. These teams have to carry out two assignments, with an emphasis on skills in the subjects biology, chemistry and physics.

In this contest, team spirit takes precedence over individual performance.

The aim of the contest is to give students the opportunity to feel like ‘real’ researchers and to measure their scientific skills against those of the other participants.

In university or high school labs they have to investigate a certain phenomenon in an interdisciplinary way through various experiments.

This phenomenon itself does not necessarily belong to the curriculum of secondary education. It often links up with ongoing scientific research.

The EOES offers participants the opportunity to exchange experiences and discuss educational structures in their country.

Lifelong friendships are often forged during the Olympiad and form the foundation of an important European scientific network.
