Middle European Mathematical Olympiad 2022

25.08.-31.08.2022 in Bern

We are a competition for motivated high school students.

Our main goal is to challenge young mathematical enthusiasts and to connect likeminded people.



About a hundred participants from ten countries are expected, including 60 contestants, 20 team leaders as well as their deputies.


All the exams will take place at the Gymnasium Lerbermatt in Köniz. The jury meeting and the coordinators' meeting will be held at the University of Bern. A big thank you to these two institutions for allowing us to use their facilities.



The entire MEMO22 is organized by volunteers, mostly from the Swiss Mathematical Olympiad. Here you can meet your organizers.

Heute beginnt die Mathematik-Olympiade in Bern – wie gut sind deine Mathe-Skills?

Heute treffen junge Talente aus 10 Ländern in Bern ein für die Middle European Mathematical Olympiad. Bist du ready? Oder musst du noch ein bisschen üben? Zum Glück hat watson.ch ein Quiz für die weniger fortgeschrittenen Mathematiker*innen unter uns erstellt.


Bald in Bern: Die Mitteleuropäische Mathematik-Olympiade 2022

Vom 25. bis 31. August ist die 16. MEMO in der Schweiz zu Gast. Etwa 60 junge Talente aus zehn Ländern werden eine Woche lang Alpen mit Algebra kombinieren und sich während kniffliger Prüfungen mit Schoggi stärken. Wir sind der Frage auf den Grund gegangen, was die MEMO einzigartig macht.
