With the very first European edition of the “Blue Sky Young Researchers” award, the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI) is calling for applications for the award and seeking young talent with innovative ideas that could revolutionize the paper industry. Altogether, eight shortlisted researchers will be invited to Brussels to present their work at CEPI’s annual event, European Paper Week (EPW), in November 2017. The deadline to apply is 2 June 2017.
From the shortlist of finalists, three successful researchers will be granted the European award and automatic access to the global competition, the “Global Blue Sky Young Researcher and Innovation Award", in 2019.
This year, the renewed concept builds on the success of the Young Researchers sessions traditionally held during EPW. You can read the detailed conditions to apply here.
