The award ceremony took place in the Natural Sciences Institute in Brussels, in the presence of more than 200 participants, including students and teachers from 16 countries, as well as Education Ministries and European Union representatives. The awards were presented by European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport Tibor Navracsics.
School teacher Angeliki Kougiourouki, who oversaw the project, received the award on behalf of the Greek delegation.
