IPT – Iiternational Physics Tournament
This prestigious tournament was won in 2018 by students in physics
The International Physicists’ Tournament was born in Ukraine in 2009 as a continuation of a long tradition of physics competitions in USSR. It brought together 16 teams from the leading universities of Ukraine and neighboring countries. The two first editions of the tournament took place at Kiev University, and the third and fourth editions occured at Moscow Institute of Technology in Russia. In 2013, the tournament moved west, to Switzerland where the fifth and sixth editions took place at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. The tournament has stayed in Europe for the subsequent years.
Over the years, more and more countries took part in this event. In 2018 the tournament brought together sixteen countries (one up on 2017!): Brazil, China, Colombia, Coatia, Demark, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland and Ukraine.
