The YES! – Young Economic Summit is an annual pupils’ competition on current challenges from economics and society under the patronage of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. In the YES!, school teams of grades 10 to 12 work together with researchers from renowned economic institutes and universities. The researchers provide the pupils with topics related to their research. They support them in scientific analyses and mentor them in the development of their own solutions.
