Following the successful organization of this type of Conferences by some National Organizations, ECCOMAS decided to extend this undertaking on a European scale with the participation of young scientists from all European countries as well as from other countries around the globe. The conference is organized and run by young investigators and supported by senior scientists.
The target groups are PhD students in all stages of their PhD programs, postdocs and young researchers, under the age of 35.
Since 2013 the Young Investigators Conferences take place on a two-year interval in odd years.
