LIYSF is a two-week residential student event held annually in London which attracts 500 of the world’s leading young scientists aged 16-21 years of age from more than 75 participating countries. LIYSF is held at Imperial College London and The Royal Geographical Society – with day visits out to other leading UK research centres and Universities, including Oxford and Cambridge Universities. Following LIYSF, these young scientists will travel to Paris and then Geneva, Switzerland to attend additional science-based programmes.
