What is "Science: next"?
"Science: next" is an extracurricular training program offering budding scientists the skills useful for the preparation for the national Jonk Fuerscher competition and entry into postgraduate studies. "Science: next" also provides a chance to attend scientific workshops conducted by experienced professionals, such as data collection with the Luxembourg Institute for Science and Technology (LIST) or nature observation techniques with the “Centre nature et forêt Mirador” team.
The program consists of a series of educational training sessions between October 2023 and July 2024. Here is an overview of the proposed training (the program is subject to change):
“Through the Science:Next programme, we aim to listen to and support our young scientists and the Luxembourgish public by formulating a balanced program between aiding in the conceptualizing, preparation, and presentation of a research project, and various practical seminars hosted by scientific researchers. We want to strengthen the existing collaborations of our popular workshops and offer new lectures to an even wider audience”, says Sousana Eang, Director of the FJSL.
Who can participate?
The program is free of charge and is aimed at young people and science enthusiasts between the ages of 11 and 21, whether they have already signed up for the Jonk Fuerscher National Competition or are still undecided.
