European Youth & The Future of University Education
European Inventors Week celebrates Europe as a driver of invention, innovation and prosperity. Scroll down, learn more and get involved!
ThinkYoung and SEK Education Group undertook an 8-month research project to investigate and analyse the experiences, views, and priorities of young European students and graduates on the future of university education. The research analysed responses from over 3,500 young people between 18 and 29 years old, across 13 European countries and the UK.
On November 8th, we will be presenting this research and engaging in discussions about the experiences and perspectives of young European students and graduates. We'll be exploring how technology, such as AI, online tools, and the Metaverse, is reshaping education and talking about the preferences of young individuals regarding new learning methods.

CodeFest on Green Plastics
The EPO’s first ever public CodeFest on Green Plastics tackles one of today's key sustainability challenges: ridding the planet of plastic waste. The code challenge is to develop creative and reliable artificial intelligence (AI) models for automating the identification of the relevant patents. We are calling on talented minds who reside in one of the EPO member states to register, either in an individual capacity or as a team of up to five people. Join us to be eligible for one of our grand prizes, which altogether total EUR 45 000.
