Romanian students scoop gold medals at EU Science Olympiad


It’s the best result in the history of Romania’s participation in this contest, the Ministry of National Education (MEN) said.

Both teams of Romania competing in the 12th edition of the European Union Science Olympiad (EUSO), a team competition in various disciplines, won gold medals, this being the best result in the history of Romania’s participation in this contest, the Ministry of National Education (MEN) said. The six gold medallists are Robert Iulian Raveanu and Tudor Costel Cretu – physics, both students at the Bucharest International High School of Computer Science, George Claudiu Savulescu (Bucharest International High School of Computer Science) and Andrei Iliescu (Ienachita Vacarescu High School based in Targoviste) – chemistry, Alexandru Zanca (Ploiesti-based Mihai Viteazul National College) and Bogdan Ionut Sisca Jippa (Bucharest-based Mihai Viteazul National College) – biology. The Romanian team was coordinatedby Daniela Bogdan.
The EU Science Olympiad took place in Athens between March 30 and April 6, bringing together 50 teams from 25 EU member states competing for biology, chemistry and physics.
It is the best result achieved by Romania ever since it took part in this contest, meaning the fourth time. In 2013 Romania won a gold medal and a silver one, and in 2011 our national Olympic team won two silver medals at EU Science Olympiad.
