VIII International Natural Sciences Tournament, January 29 - 4 February, 2018, Agra, India

Every year bright young scientists gather at the International Natural Sciences Tournament (INST) to generate new scientific ideas and stand up for their own ideas during dynamic scientific polemics. The Tournament helps to form collaborations between participants, scientific experts and industry.

Students should be studying one of the following specializations: Chemistry, Material Science, Physics, Biology, Medicine, Pharmaceuticals, Engineering or related areas. The team should be supported by a coach, a person with a completed Master’s degree, or higher.
