Once the cost of tuition is covered, the selected participants become part of BIYSC. During the two-week residential program, participants will live a world-class experience by working hands-on in a project of their choice, on different scientific and technological challenges proposed by international research centers based in Catalonia, which are involved in cutting-edge research.

The program also offers its participants to attend scientific lectures given by leading researchers, to debate and discuss with them the most successful discoveries and scientific advances that are taking place worldwide.

While taking part in this experience, we want to encourage our students’ passion for pursuing scientific research and careers in science.

At the end of the program, participants’ capacity and motivation will be evaluated by their mentor researchers, and those excelling will be deemed to have successfully completed the 4th Challenge
