IEYI or the International Exhibition for Young Inventors was started in the year 2004 as a part of the 100th Anniversary celebration of Japan Institute of Invention and Innovation. The event provides an exciting opportunity for students, providing them with a global platform to share their innovations.
IEYI 2020 is aimed at enhancing the critical and scientific thinking of participating students as they get introduced to some core concepts of technology and science. The science fair hopes to cultivate skills like communication and scientific literacy.
IEYI 2020 will be held at Indonesia, in collaboration with the Indonesia Science Expo. The event will witness about 200 young innovators from various countries who exhibit their projects and share their scientific experiences with the world.
The participants of IEYI 2020 can choose from the two available themes – Innovative Invention Production and Creative Art Painting. The works of an individual participant can be submitted in only one category. Participants cannot change their works once submitted.

Students can also choose Art technology and submit their project based on the theme of 2020 – “The Technology of Tomorrow.” This category promotes creative thinking in participants and enhances their problem-solving skills. The artworks can be submitted in any form, but the works should not have copyright infringement.
