About the Competition

The YPPC, organised by IGEM since 2002, has served as a platform for aspiring gas professionals and students aged between 18 and 35 to showcase their skills and innovations.

Originally a paper competition, it has evolved to focus on presentations, encouraging broader participation and emphasising practical skills alongside written abilities.
