Fondation Jeunes Scientifiques Discovering the world of science and research Fondation Jeunes Scientifiques Luxembourg (FJSL) is an organisation with public utility that promotes natural and social sciences among young people in Luxembourg and provides a platform where they can exhibit their own scientific projects, participate in cultural exchanges and win prestigious awards. To achieve this, the foundation has been organising the national Contest "Jonk Fuerscher" every year since 1971 in order to give young participants the opportunity to win awards and present their work at an international competition. The laureates of the national contest get the possibility to participate in the largest scientific competitions and fairs all around the world, like the (EUCYS) European Contest for Young Scientists, which is being organized by the European Commission and takes place every year in the capital of an EU Member State. A few other examples of international competitions and fairs include LIYSF (London International Youth Science Forum), the International Wildlife Research Week, YSM (Youth Science Meeting), CASTIC (China Adolescents Science and Technology Innovation Contest) and Intel ISEF (Intel International Science and Engineering Fair). For the full list of awards, please consult their homepage. During the same time as the Contest, FJSL also organizes the Expo-Sciences Luxembourg, which is an international science fair that welcomes young laureates from all over the world. Young scientists get the possibility to present their projects alongside the national participants. FJSL is always on the lookout for tutors, contacts in the research industry and field experts in order to give their young scientists the best possible support and help for their projects. The Contest is being powered by the FNR, supported by the Ministry of National Education, Children and Youth and is recognized by UNSECO. In 2017, FJSL has been awarded the High Patronage of his Royal Highness the Grand Duc.
