Diversity: The Rich get Richer and the Poor get Poorer

SEP 24-27




The interdependence between five fundamental pillars is central to the philosophy of the International S.T.E.P.S. Foundation. Those pillars are Science, Technology, Economics, Politics and Society (S.T.E.P.S). In unison, these four elements are of vital importance in afflicting our lives and thus are of grave importance for our society. Some of the subject areas examined by the Olympiads of the Mind are magnetism, engineering, computers and the future of man and space research.

Tenth Olympiad of the mind

On behalf of the International S.T.E.P.S. Foundation, we are very happy to announce that The 10th Olympiad of the Mind will take place at the beaches of Crete in Chania, Greece from September 24-27, 2020. 

Some of the world’s strongest minds, eminent scientists, including a number of Nobel Laureates and academicians, businessmen and political leaders have profited over the years from these university – industry – government interactions. These discussions have given rise to the birth of new scientific projects and business ventures, numerous proceedings and lasting friendships.

We would be honored to have you participate at the conference. Please let us know which aspect of the umbrella theme interests you: “Diversity: The Rich Get Richer and the Poor get Poorer”: Science, Technology, Economics and/or Politics.

The offering of your unique ideas is vitally important to the success of this gathering, in leaving a unified prescription for future generations, a legacy for today’s youth to live by.


The theme for the 9th Olympiad of the Mind is:

“The Rich get Richer and the Poor get Poorer”
