Young researchers at the start. Every year thousands of young people come up with new ideas and research results and put together new gadgets and machinery in order to win a leading place in the annual competition entitled "Jugend forscht" (Young People Research). Before they get to the final they have to win a regional competition. The regional competition takes place at DASA every year in February. Here participants from Arnsberg, Dortmund, Hagen, Schwerte, Soest, Wenden, Wetter and Witten compete against each other for the best places. They present their projects to a jury consisting of experts from industry, schools and colleges. The winners then take part in the national competition. "Jugend forscht" is jointly promoted by the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Care and ThyssenKrupp, both of whom present the regional competition at DASA.
