The European Physics Olympics is the most prestigious competition for high school students. The International Physics Olympics, in which Serbia traditionally participates, was not held this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The competition was considerably tougher this year due to the participation of non-European teams which, like Serbia, were interested in participating after the International Olympics were cancelled.
