With the slogan of "Bring a fresh breeze to science", young talents can participate again in 2011 in areas such as the natural sciences, mathematics or technology.

The invitation is open to all curious and creative young researchers.

Contributions are permitted from individuals and from groups of up to three participants. Regarding age, the children and teenagers must be in at least the fourth year of school, but may not be older than 21 years.
