YET 2018 actively looked for fifty top talents (ten from each country). These talents must be between the ages of 18 to 35 and must have demonstrated their capabilities (doctoral degree, special recognitions, excellent results or scientific successes, etc.) in their disciplines. Each country can nominate only two talents per discipline.
The ceremony was held on 13-15 November in Maastricht, the Netherlands. Panos is can be seen in a grey suit with light blue shirt (bottom row; fifth from the left).
