Lea Bogensperger and Eva Reitbauer have spent over a year preparing and organising the European Youth Forum Graz 2013. The Forum, which took place from the 8th to 12th of July, summoned 90 EYPers from all over Europe under the historic rooftops of Graz and gave them a chance to discuss important issues in the field of Research & Development.
During this event, Lea and Eva showed exceptional leadership as well as exceptional personal qualities. Their kind, always-smiling approach to Head-Organising made the forum a joy for Officials and Delegates alike.
Lea, who is a student of Biomedical Engineering at Graz University of Technology, first joined EYP Austria at the National Conference 2011 in Vienna. Since then, she has participated in both national and international EYP events as a Delegate, Chair and Organiser.
Eva, who is a student at Graz University of Technology in the field of Geomatics Engineering, started her impressive EYP career at the 1st International Youth Forum Leipzig 2011, which she attended together with Lea. As an active member of EYP Austria, Eva has not only participated in various sessions both nationally and internationally, but has also attended several other events, such as Alumni Weekends and Trainings.
Both as a team and individually, Eva and Lea are irreplaceable members of EYP Austria and we are very much looking forward to their future plans within EYP.
Thank you for everything!
