What is the IBO?

The Competition

The International Biology Olympiad e.V. (IBO) is an association that organizes a yearly Biology competition for secondary school students, who are winners of their respective National Biology Olympiad.

Their skills in tackling biological problems, and dealing with biological experiments are tested. Interest in biology, inventiveness, creativity and perseverance are necessary.

In bringing together gifted students, the IBO competition tries to challenge and stimulate these students to expand their talents and to promote their career as scientists.

A very important point is gathering young people from over the world in an open, friendly and peaceful mind.

Every participating country sends four students. They are accompanied by two team leaders who represent the country.
