Each year, the Global Energy Association holds the Energy of Youth, an annual competition to accelerate scientific progress in Russia's energy sector by encouraging young scientists to carry out their research within the field. The competition is conducted among the specialised research and academic institutions of the Russian Federation.
Further to being bestowed with the honour of winning the prestigious and reputable Energy of Youth competition, winners receive a specially tailored grant to be put towards their own research programmes within the field. The grants are paid out regardless of the winner’s property status, nationality, gender or race. Their research will then be published in some of Russia’s leading specialised periodicals. Winners of the competition will also have the opportunity to deliver a speech at the Research & Practice Symposium, organised annually by the Global Energy Association as part of the Laureates’ Week Program.
Participants must be under 35 years of age, citizens of the Russian Federation, actively involved in research in the energy sector, enrolled in a university course focusing on the field of “power”, and already have their own publications on energy or power. While preparing their programmes for the Contest, young people are not allowed to receive assistance from more than one academic adviser. No age restrictions are imposed on such advisers.
Each winner gets RUB 1 mln grant for the continuation of research. The total prize fund RUB 3 mln.
