21 July 2015

In all, 244 students from 61 countries met in Aarhus for the International Biology Olympiad from 12th to 19th July 2015. Following a memorable opening ceremony in the Aarhus Concert Hall, the students set to work on four practical tests in the fields of botany, zoology, biochemistry and molecular biology.

At the end of a long and exciting week, Germany had won a gold and three silver medals.

From an international perspective, Germany was also very successful. Following the US and Asian countries, Germany came eight which made it the most successful West European competitor. Next year, IBO is off to Hanoi in Vietnam. There, four new IBO members will participate for the first time in the competition, namely Egypt, Bangladesh, Iceland and Norway.
