Bavarian state competition Jugend forscht - Flottweg as Bavarian state sponsor

Jugend forscht, Germany's best-known competition for young talent in the STEM subjects, will take place again in 2024. From 10 to 12 April 2024, state sponsor Flottweg will be hosting the Bavarian state competition in Vilsbiburg under the motto "Get your head around it". The aim of Jugend forscht is to get young people interested in science and to encourage creativity and curiosity. Young researchers between the ages of 15 and 21 present their diverse research projects from seven different categories such as biology, physics and technology. Separation technology specialist Flottweg is once again taking on the role of sponsor company and host. 


"We are particularly pleased to support Jugend forscht in Bavaria as a state sponsor. The promotion of young STEM talents has been of great importance at Flottweg for decades - for us as a technology leader in the field of mechanical separation technology, the focus is on encouraging young people to realize their enthusiasm and spirit of research for the STEM subjects," explains Dr. Kersten Link, Spokesman of the Management Board at Flottweg.
