The London International Youth Science Forum (LIYSF – www.liysf.org.uk) is a two-week residential event held at Imperial College London, with lectures and demonstrations from leading scientists, visits to industrial sites, research centres, scientific institutions and organisations, including world-class laboratories and universities.
The two-week residential forum attracts over 500 of the world’s leading young scientists, aged 16-21 years old, from more than 70 participating countries. Students are invited to attend our programme, either selected by you or as individual applicants. They will join our student body that is also made of other students who are prize winners, including top winners from European Union Contest for Young Scientists, INTEL ISEF, FAST Italy, National Youth Science Forum Australia and Ministry of Education Singapore to name a few.
LIYSF 2018 will explore the future developments in the sciences, with lecture demonstrations, specialist seminars and debates led by a team of scientists and experts. Key elements of our programme include opportunities to visit industrial sites, research centres, scientific institutions and organisations, including world-class research institutions and laboratories. Students are able to tailor their programme at LIYSF to suit their STEM interests. There is a strong and active social calendar at LIYSF. A vital part of the experience of attending LIYSF is teaching and learning about different cultures and traditions.
The majority of participants are supported to attend the forum as prize winners of national and international science competitions. Many also receive scholarships from educational bodies, schools and colleges, grants from industry and scientific institutions and funding from charitable foundations.
