Record participation in the Jugend forscht Iberia 2024 competition in Lisbon

From February 22 to 23, this year's Jugend forscht Iberia Regional Competition took place at the German School of Lisbon under the motto "Make up your mind" - with CIB as the exclusive sponsor of the competition.

Record number of participants with 45 innovative school projects

The competition attracted 45 projects and 80 participants from 10 schools in Portugal and Spain, which is the highest number of participants in the history of the competition on the Iberian Peninsula. We see this as a sign of our joint successful work, which would not have been possible without CIB sponsorship with owner Ulrich Brandner and the great commitment of the German School of Lisbon as host.
