Curiosity and fascination are drivers of innovation and success, because today’s inquisitive youngsters are the innovators and success stories of the future. This not only sums up the guiding principles of the IMC Krems Youth University; it also reflects our personal commitment to sparking a sense of curiosity and enthusiasm for the world of science and research among children and young people.

The Youth University provides a five-day programme of lectures and workshops on a wide range of different subjects for children aged between 10 and 13, and gives them an opportunity to get a taste of real university life. We want to draw their attention to trends and future topics. The youngsters learn about potential education and career options open to them in the focus areas of business, health, science, and engineering and digitalisation, which will help them to choose suitable options later on.

The Youth University is not an initiative for highly gifted individuals. On the contrary, an important objective is to offer a programme which will appeal to all children and young people. In particular, we want to promote access to science and research for children and young people from educationally disadvantaged backgrounds.
