Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie were among the guests for the 46th Jonk Fuerscher national competition today. Literally "Young researchers", the competition exists in various European countries and actually is the biggest youth science and technology competition in Europe. The participants work on a self-chosen research project, hand in a written report about their work, and then present their results first at regional levels and later at a national contest to an expert jury, usually in the form of a poster session, often including a practical demonstration. The winners go on to represent their countries at Europe-wide competitions.
