Who are the Young Talents 2022

The Young Talents event is part of the 20th Erasmus-Descartes Conference, which is organised by the French Embassy in the Netherlands and the Embassy of the Netherlands in France. This bilateral high-level conference is an annual event which gathers over a hundred upcoming and renowned experts. The central theme of each edition differs according to the European agenda and following current developments in both countries. The Young Talents event offers ample networking opportunities.

Whereas the Erasmus-Descartes Conference is a one day event, the Young Talents have been working in two teams on challenges related to the topic in one month (online – own/team preparation time) and three days (in Paris – full working days) prior to the conference. During the conference, they get to pitch with their team the results of their work to the participants of the conference, and have an unique opportunity to enter into discussion with them on stage. After the formal programme of the conference, there is time for networking and finding connections for their future work field.
